Oroville Flooding Precautions

We know many of you have been impacted by the evacuations caused by the hazardous situation involving   damaged spillways at Lake Oroville.   Until we learn otherwise, we expect that large volumes of water will continue to flow into the Feather River and other waterways causing water levels to rise to potential flood stage. 

 

While the crisis appears to have eased somewhat, the situation is still dangerous and evacuations should continue until otherwise notified by authorities.  You can access complete Oroville evacuation and emergency service information at http://www.buttecounty.net/.

Here are some important tips to keep in mind when dealing with a flood emergency

During a flood

· Don't attempt to drive through floodwaters.

 

· Abandon your car if it stalls in an area where there are rapidly rising waters.

 

· No matter where you are, move to higher ground.

 

· Move away from rivers, streams, creeks, storm drains and other waterways.

 

· Avoid walking through floodwaters.

 

·Obey traffic instructions and detour information. They are being issued for your safety.

After a flood

 

· The danger caused by floods isn't over when the water recedes, so don't attempt to return home until authorities say it's safe to do so.

 

· If your car has been submerged, let it dry out thoroughly before trying to start it.

 

· Use battery-powered flashlights or lanterns to examine the premises. Do not attempt to turn the lights on until you are sure it is safe to do so.

 

· Boil any water you use for drinking or food preparation until the water supply is declared safe.

 

· Throw out any food or medicine that has come in contact with flood waters.

 

· Take wooden furniture outside to dry, but keep it out of direct sun-light to prevent warping.

 

· Before the house is aired out, scrub all woodwork and floors with a stiff brush.

Bob Condos, President, Impact Media Group, Inc.
As an owner of multiple income properties here in Northern California, for years I had dealt with a patchwork of different insurance companies. About three years ago I challenged each of my agents to provide an estimate for bundling all of my insurance needs, including my homeowner's and auto policies. Pam Hester at Dahlmeier Insurance Agency gave me a quote through Grange Insurance that was lower by far than the others, resulting in savings of several hundred dollars per year. But it’s more than saving money. The insurance side of my business has been simplified, and I enjoy the personal, friendly service I receive whenever I decide to drop by in person, whether it's to ask a question, request a document, or make a payment. Thanks Pam, and thanks to Dahlmeier Insurance.

Don Schukraft, CEO, Western Weather Group, Inc.
Dahlmeier Insurance has provided us with alternatives to the normal, plain vanilla coverage. They provided us with a fresh set of eyes to look at what we have in terms of coverage, and they tell us what else is out there that may better fit our needs. Specifically Dahlmeier Insurance worked with us to secure a Workers Comp plan that has been a game changer. We had been absorbing 20% increases each year while lowering our accident and claims exposure. Dahlmeier Insurance introduced a program that allowed us to share some risk while lowering our premium. We knew we could control our safety exposure, what we needed was a partner to allow us to prove ourselves. Dahlmeier Insurance to secure us a multi-year contract that has saved us money, and tied OUR safety program to OUR Workers Comp cost.
