Safety protocols include never entering flood waters unless escaping immediate danger, as well as being up to date on tetanus vaccination to avoid illness, staying clear of downed powerlines, and using all proper safety equipment when cleaning up a home after a flood. The department recommends that doors and windows be open while cleaning affected areas, and throwing away perishable food that has be stored at above 40 degrees for more than two hours. Governor Andy Beshear assured citizens his administration would support them saying, “We will use every resource available to us to ensure Kentuckians affected by these devastating floods can have a safe and expedient recovery.”
