Coming Home after a Flood, Returning Home After Flood.
Going back home after a flood can be dangerous if precautions are not been taken
Coming Home after a Flood, The floodwaters are receding in Kerala as the week-long heavy rains are waning. Yet, for those planning to return home, it is advisable to ensure that there won’t be another round of deluge soon. Some tips are:
- Don’t be alone when you return home. Take with you a couple of people, who can be of (mutual) help when there is a sudden emergency…
- Never take children with you; the accompanists should be adults…
- Don’t return to home at night. Go when it’s daytime, so that you can see everything around
- Must expect reptiles inside the house and outside…
- There can perhaps be a cooking-gas leak from the kitchen. So never use light fire — be it to use a candle or smoke a cigarette
- Those having concrete fence around their house should take care while opening the gate. Everything is soaked in water, and hence even cement structures can collapse.
- Take care not to slip on the watery earth. Carry with you a towel to be tied around nose and mouth; better if you have a mask. Thick gloves also help.
- Don’t touch with bare hands a dead body — be it of a human being or animal.
- Mark with acrylic or chalk on the wall the level till which water has risen in the house. Such an exercise would be helpful in a study on futuristic studies on the risk of living in riverine belts and low-lying areas. In 1924, when the region last had its flood of similar intensity. No such effort was made, thus leaving several regions of Kerala clueless about liveability in the in the time of a deluge
- Switch of the main electricity board before you enter the house. Also ensure that LPG cylinders are switched off.
- Wooden doors would have bloated in the floods; so it would be tough to pull or push them while trying to open. Don’t apply too much force in one go, because the drenched walls too would not be in the best of shape.
- Be inside house only after opening windows and letting fresh air come in.
- If you sense any kind of unnatural or foul smell, don’t stay inside for long
- Don’t open refrigerators carelessly. The rotten food, especial non-vegetarian, would have produced dangerous gases like methane that can exit with force.
- Make an estimate of the financial loss of every object inside, click their pictures
- Open taps and flushes to see if it is mud water or fresh water coming out
- Whenever there is sunlight, let the windows remain open for fresh air to circulate the inside of the house.
- Gather a definite idea with the rest in the locality on where to dump things that have gone into disuse owing to the flood. The decayed stuff should not just to be casually thrown somewhere.
Cleaning up and repairing:
Once floodwaters have receded, carefully clean and disinfect each wet item to protect your home and family from sewage or chemical contaminants. Be certain to wear protective clothing, including rubber gloves and boots, during cleanup activities.
Floods and food.
Any items that have come in contact with floodwater should be thrown out. This includes bottled water, canned goods, plastic utensils, baby bottles, and more. When in doubt, throw it out!
Scammers and con artists.
Hire only professional, reputable contractors for cleanup and repair needs. Avoid the “drive-by” contractor.
Should your basement become flooded, drain it gradually – about 1/3 per day – to prevent structurally damage and collapse that may result from rapid water removal.
Contact your insurance agents to discuss flash flood recovery claims.
Stay tuned to your TV or radio during flash flood recovery for information on assistance available in your area through government or other organizations.

Rolling ladders and stairways are found in many warehouses, retail outlets and storage
facilities. Drivers of trucks also use rolling ladders in fire stations and truck stops to clean
windshields and service the tops of their trucks. Rolling ladders are made of lightweight
tubular steel that is welded to large steps, usually made of expanded steel treads. Rolling
ladders vary in height from short, two-step models to tall, twelve foot models. Review
these safety tips:
Each year , accidents involving ladders cause an estimated 300 deaths and 130,000 injuries
requiring emergency medical attention.
Ladder accidents usually are caused by improper selection, care or use, not by manufacturing defects.
Some of the more common hazards involving ladders, such as instability, electrical shock, and falls,
can be predicted and prevented. Prevention requires proper planning, correct ladder
selection, good work procedures and adequate ladder maintenance.

LADDER SAFETY BASICS
Survey the area for overhead power lines before
setting up and climbing ladders.
Inspect ladders before climbing.
Never use a damaged or unsafe ladder.
Verify ladder capacity before climbing.
Don’t use them for anything other than the job
they’re intended to do.
Never stand on the top two steps of a stepladder,
and don’t use a step ladder as a straight ladder.
Raise extension ladders 3 feet (3 or 4 rungs) over the
Tie off / secure extension ladders to prevent tip over
or kick out.
ROLLING LADDER SAFETY
Keep rolling ladders in good mechanical condition.
Rolling ladders that are stored outside should be protected from rain, snow and ice.
Rolling ladders that are stored outside should be inspected regularly for rust and corrosion.
Inspect rolling ladders before use.
Rolling ladders that have been damaged or “sprung” must be removed from service.
Rolling ladders that have missing rubber “feet” should have them replaced.
Rolling ladders should be climbed facing the ladder – not facing outward.
Climb rolling ladders using 3-point contact – do not carry loads that are too bulky or heavy.
Do not over reach – could cause ladder to tip.
Do not stand on the hand rails.
Do not move an occupied ladder.
Never stand with one foot on the ladder and the other on an object such as shelving.
Do not set up rolling ladders in areas where doors could swing open into the ladder.
Avoid setting up rolling ladders in direct proximity to forklift or vehicle traffic.
Do not tamper with or modify ladders.
Remove tools, equipment or boxes before moving a rolling ladder.
Use the step brake / lock if equipped.
Consider tying off / securing the rolling ladder if tipping is a concern.
Do not attempt to gain additional height by standing on boxes or buckets atop rolling ladder platforms.
Submit ladder maintenance requests / safety concerns in writing.
