A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE
Flash Flood Safety
Heavy rains can quickly create flash floods. If you are caught driving in flash flood conditions, please:
•Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
•Reduce your speed and drive carefully, especially on curves.
•Slow down. It’s the only way to keep your vehicle from hydroplaning. Also, remember that one of the most dangerous times to drive is soon after it begins to rain, as oils on the roadway make for slick conditions. Waiting a few minutes, rather than rushing to your destination, can be a safer plan when it is raining.
•Turn your headlights on to help other vehicles see you. Many states require the use of headlights during rain, even in broad daylight.
•Add one or two extra seconds of following time in the rain, which gives you and the cars behind you more time to react to traffic.
•Get out of your car and check for water depth If you come across water over the road before you attempt to cross it. Do not attempt to cross if the water is moving.
