Did you know that since 1900, floods have taken the lives of more than 10,000 US residents? In our dry Colorado climate, flooding is rarely top of mind, but it can happen. The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department encourages us to be mindful. Here are some safety tips:
-If flooding occurs in streets or other areas with rapidly flowing water, remember to “turn around, don’t drown!”
-Get to higher ground as quickly as possible to avoid the potential for water to sweep you off your feet, or sweep your car away uncontrollably.
-Don’t allow children to play near high water, storm drains, or ditches.
-Monitor the weather through weather apps, local news, or NOAA weather radio to be prepared for any potential flooding during severe rain storms.
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about flood safety. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming. Learn more about CRFD at CRgov.com/fire.
