As we recover from Imelda, it is important to stay safe while working with debris.
 
GET YOUR GEAR!
 
- Hard hats
- Goggles
- Heavy work gloves
- Waterproof boots with steel toes
- Earplugs or headphones (if you're working with noisy equipment)
 
STAY HEALTHY!
 
- Clean up, disinfect, and practice good hygiene to avoid illness from bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew.
- 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.
 
PACE YOURSELF!
 
- 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.
 
TAKE PRECAUTIONS!
 
- Check for damaged water, gas, and electric lines.
- Do not attempt to conduct major tree work or reconstruction without proper equipment, permits, and training.
- Be aware of household hazardous waste and contaminants.
- Report any hazardous materials spills to: Harris County Pollution Control Services Department at 713-920-2831.
 
Crisis Cleanup:

This is going to be UGLY... I am sure that those people that have the huge piles of debris spread al over the yard are not going to go out and separate everything, It is one HUGE mess due to looters rummaging through them and is beginning to stink.

If I remember correctly, after Ike came through, FEMA sent trucks out to pick up debris. It took a while, but they did a good job of getting it all picked up.
 
In fact I know it was. My next door neighbor was livid about some debris from my yard was on HIS property. When the FEMA guys came through, I went out and ask them to try to get it since my neighbor was being an *** about. The nice guy said that since he was being so asinine, they would be sure to NOT pick the part on his property until later. And they did ... much later. I kinda' enjoyed his attitude. :-)

@KingwoodDotCom : Thanks for posting! We are blessed to have not flooded but I saved a copy of that flyer to my documents because I just never know when it might be my house. If I have the info on how to separate my items before I start piling it out there it sure would make it easier.

@Andreweggplant : It is one thing to pick up stuff people have put out because they no longer want or need it. But when people have to put stuff out because their home flooded, people should leave it alone. These people do not want to get rid of their stuff. They are being forced to get rid of it. Not to mention, who would risk going through stuff that may have sewer water on it. The idea of that makes me sick.
