In the wake of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, the International Code Council (ICC) has issued guidelines for inspecting and maintaining plumbing and electrical systems in the wake of a hurricane.

Topics in the ICC guidelines include system inspections, safety tips and repair best practices for vital components.

The International Code Council (ICC) notes that for any work being undertaken be sure to consult the locally adopted codes.
