FEMA outreach Saturday & Sunday at Home Depot
Published 10:50 am, Friday, November 23, 2012
Mitigation specialists will offer "how-to" information for retrofitting buildings and elevating utilities, as well as clean-up tips to prevent mold and mildew from forming in a storm-damaged home.
Information will include instructions on how to relocate circuit-breaker panels, outlets and switches above flood waters, moving washer and dryer hookups to a higher floor, elevating furnaces and water heaters and preventing sewer backups with a backflow valve.
The FEMA team will be at the Home Depot both Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
