  1. Determine whether or not it is safe to exit your home or business, then cautiously exit the property, it is possible that the main exit has been blocked by debris from the storm.
  2. Once you have exited the property, cautiously walk the parameter of the property to observe damages that may have occurred. WATCH FOR DOWN POWER LINES!!! If you observe a down power line IMMEDIATELY contact your service provider, DO NOT TOUCH OR ATTEMPT TO MOVE POWER LINES!!!
  3. Determine the extent of the damage, and then contact R. Graham Construction to help assist you with any emergency repairs.
