What to Do If Your Appliances Are Wet After a Disaster

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Script

This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Home fires are a threat after a natural disaster. Fire trucks may have trouble getting to your home. If your home was flooded, look for signs that your appliances have gotten wet and throw them away to protect from shock or fire. Have a professional evaluate your home and replace all gas control valves, circuit breakers, and fuses that have gotten wet during a flood. To learn more, call CDC at 800-CDC-INFO.
