How Can I Reduce Windstorm Damage to My Home in Springfield?

A dandelion releases its seeds during a windstorm. We respond to storm damage emergencies 365 days a year in Lane County.

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you are no stranger to windstorms. Our local Springfield and East Lane County witnesses firsthand the damage these powerful winds can cause to homes and businesses in Springfield, and offer these tips from the State of Oregon website for preparing for a windstorm:

  • Contact your local emergency management office or the Portland-based National Weather Service office to find out what types of storms are most likely to occur in your community.
  • Assemble an emergency kit and make a family communication plan.
  • If you have a home generator, make sure you know how to use it safely. Follow all instructions and contact the vendor, if necessary. Improper use of a generator can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Find out who in your area might need special assistance, such as the elderly, disabled, and non-English speaking neighbors.
  • Check with your veterinarian for animal care instructions in an emergency situation.
  • If you live on a coastal or inland shoreline, be familiar with evacuation routes.
  • Know what emergency plans are in place at your workplace, school, and daycare center.
  • Conduct a home safety evaluation to find out which nearby trees could fall in a windstorm.
  • If you have an electric garage door opener, locate the manual override.
