Disaster Preparedness

Hurricane SeasonMake a plan. Know how you will be able to communicate with your family in case you are apart in the event of a disaster, care for pets, & shut off your utilities.

Gather essential supplies including enough food & water to sustain you & your family for at least 72 hours. Other items you will want to have on hand include a battery-powered or hand crank radio, flashlight with extra batteries, first aid kit, garbage bags, moist towelettes, bleach, blankets, matches, a manual can opener, paper goods, local maps, paper & pencil, & important documents such as IDs, insurance policies, & financial documents in a water-proof container. You’ll want to consider any special needs your family may have which may include prescription medications, baby formula, or pet food.

Secure your property. Cover your home’s windows, install straps to further secure your roof, trim shrubs & trees, & bring in or secure loose outdoor items such as patio furniture & garbage cans.

Tagging Ads with Keywords

The following guidelines for tagging ads with keywords will help you sell your stuff faster:

  • separate tags with a comma
  • a tag should almost never be more than two or three words
  • tag with both specific and general words like “swimming pool” and “pool”
  • use singular rather than plural (leave off the “s” at the end) unless its necessary for a word like “parts” or “plants” or you would normally search for the plural form
  • don’t use punctuation
  • always tag breed & features that are likely to appear in other ads
  • limit to about 3 to 5 tags
  • don’t tag common words that aren’t specific to your item
  • capitalize the first letter of proper names and brands
  • double-check your spelling
  • don’t use all caps unless it’s an acronym
  • also tag abbreviations such as “VW” for “Volkswagen”
  • tag with “wanted” if you are looking to buy something
  • tag with “trade” if you are willing to trade
  • tag with “free” only if the item is truly free without having to buy anything else
  • don’t repeat the category in the tags
  • tag colors, materials, etc.
  • don’t tag locations if you have already entered them in a location field
  • Refurbished, repurposed.
