Important Safety Tips for After the Storm

As we continue to pick up the pieces left behind by Hurricane Ian, please be aware that your vehicle might pose serious safety concerns. At Parks CDJF Space Coast, we know that the road to recovery is difficult, but there are steps that can be taken to prevent further problems from making your situation any worse. Please read these tips before revving your engine - and be sure to tell your friends and neighbors about them as well.

  • Do NOT start a car that has been flooded. Starting a flooded engine could cause further damage, and can be dangerous.
  • If any water has gotten inside the fuel tank, the tank will need to be completely emptied before refilling.
  • There could also be water damage to electronic components of your car. Be careful when turning on the radio or testing other electronic components, and be aware that any water damage to them can surface at a later date.
  • Check for a waterline inside the vehicle. If the water didn’t make it above the bottom of the doors, your vehicle may be unharmed!

If you're looking to purchase a new vehicle in the aftermath of a storm, be wary of the condition the vehicles you're considering are in since both new and used cars might have been damaged. Be sure to request a vehicle history report and a full inspection.
