May 10 - Hurricane Preparedness Week – Strengthen Your Home

Category: Georgia Business News

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

May 10, 2018 - High winds and falling debris during a hurricane can cause devastating destruction and damage to homes. As part of Hurricane Preparedness Week, CEMA is placing emphasis on strengthening homes in Chatham County. Whether evacuating or sheltering in place, gather materials and develop a plan.

  • Evaluate the current strength of your home
  • Make a list of necessary supplies
  • Make a plan for where and how to secure property

If able, purchase supplies now before a storm approaches, as stores may run out quickly; preparing in advance saves time and money. Also, remember to secure outdoor furniture and ornaments, lock all doors, trim any dead or hanging tree limbs and cover windows before the storm hits. When residents strengthen their home, it strengthens their community. 

Stay informed before, during and after an event by following CEMA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @ChathamEMA. If you would like to receive alerts via text message, text “Follow ChathamEMA” to 40404
