- Get medical care if you are injured, sick, or having trouble coping with stress.
- Stay cool and drink plenty of fluids to prevent heat-related illness.
- Cleaning up your home can be a big job. Be sure to take care of yourself:
- Rest when you need to.
- Get help lifting heavy or bulky objects.
- Try to work with other people, so you aren't alone.

Crisis Cleanup:
Residents that need cleanup assistance due to the Serve Weather in September 2019 are encouraged to register their home with Crisis Cleanup by calling 800-451-1954. Crisis Cleanup is an online database used by local faith based organizations and disaster relief agencies to coordinate cleanup efforts after a disaster. There are no guarantees for service but all disaster survivors with cleanup needs are asked to register. The Crisis Cleanup line will be open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. Residents can also call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to leave a message and receive a call back.
Visit www.readyharris.org for more information on debris removal and recovery resources.
