Home Depot schools the nation in hurricane know-how

The Home Depot is helping the nation prepare for the warmer months with a series of hurricane workshops being held across the nation on Saturday, May 31, the first day of hurricane season.

"As we prepare for the first day of hurricane season, The Home Depot is committed to providing our customers the essential know-how to protect their homes and their families if a storm strikes," said U.S. Stores president Craig Menear. "Our hope is for these workshops to bring communities together, provide important preparedness information and inspire residents to take action."

The second annual Hurricane Preparedness Workshops will be held in 700 locations ranging from the Gulf Coast to New England, featuring the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and The Ready Campaign.

The workshops will cover various topics such as storm preparation, generator safety, sizing generators according to need and creating disaster preparedness kits.

Attendees can catch the event on May 31 from 10 a.m. to noon local time, free of charge. For more information, visit Home Depot's workshop page.
