Sanitization Recommendations Following Flooding

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener will:

  • Be better prepared to react to an emergency flood situation
  • Know proper steps and precautions to take when cleaning, disinfecting, and repairing areas, goods, or property damaged by excessive flooding
 

Over the last several weeks, a large part of the country has been inundated by torrential rains associated with tropical storms.  Dr. Greg Forbes, the Weather Channel’s severe weather expert, reported that Hurricane Irene alone dumped 16 trillion gallons of water on the United States.  That volume would cover the entire state of Texas to a depth of 3.4 inches.  More recent storms have exposed parts of the Northeast to rising water and dangerous flood conditions that threaten the homes, workplaces, and health.  With that said, THE NEXT DDS thought it important to share several cleaning and sanitizing recommendations after flooding.

Certainly we hope you, your classmates, and your loved ones are not exposed to the above scenario.  If flooding is an unfortunate reality, however, bear in mind that flood water may be toxic and/or contaminated, and it is important you check with local emergency personnel, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, OSAP, and other resources--such as those afforded in THE NEXT DDS--to ensure everyone’s health and well-being.  Thanks and we hope this was informative to you.
