..DAY 5 OF HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK IN SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND
 
 
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE (NWS) BOSTON, MA HAS DECLARED JULY 16TH  
THROUGH JULY 20TH 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.
