...HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK IN SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND...

Strengthen Your Home...

The National Weather Service (NWS) Boston, MA has declared July
15th through July 19th as Hurricane Preparedness Week. Each day
this week we will highlight a different preparedness topic.

If you plan to ride out a hurricane in your home, make sure it is
in good repair and up to local hurricane building code
specifications. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels
to board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is
the most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to
withstand high winds.

There is a lot you can do around your home to help protect it
from the strong winds that come with hurricanes. Well ahead of the
approaching storm, trim trees on your property, shop for approved
window coverings, collect loose outdoor items, secure all doors
on your property and fine a safe location for your vehicle.
