  • Closing and securely fastening doors and windows, particularly those on the windward side of the house
  • Parking vehicles in a garage if available – otherwise try to keep them away from trees, walls and fences
  • If possible please help out any elderly family, friends or neighbours that may need some extra support to stay safe
