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.
