Being Thankful For The Holidays

Being Thankful For The HolidaysAs Floridians, we are truly thankful for not having any severe weather during this hurricane season that is about to end on November 30th.Being Thankful

The last hurricane to hit the state was Category 3 Wilma, which roared ashore near Naples and buzz-sawed across the peninsula, leaving a $9 billion trail of ripped roofs and shattered high-rise windows from Miami to Palm Beach. That was five years ago.

Even though the next season is months away, now is the perfect time to prepare your home.

The Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) is encouraging both residents and business owners to take advantage of the cooler months now to add hurricane-resistant features to their residences and commercial buildings.

Homeowners in high-wind prone areas of the country are advised to provide protection for all glazed openings with approved shutter systems or by replacing the windows with impact rated products.

The FEMA publication, “Against the Wind”, looks at the areas and suggests ways to strengthen homes from wind damage before the next hurricane strikes.

Commercial properties are also advised to re-evaluate their hurricane plans. Should one have put in place a plan during the past hurricane-season, be sure to make the time to receive feedback on how effective it was.

Be safe and be prepared. Have a Great Holiday Season!
