In an effort to equip residents in storm prone regions for the upcoming hurricane season, Home Depot stores in the area will host hurricane preparedness workshops on Saturday, July 27 from 10 - 11:30 a.m.

The events are part of an unprecedented single-day outreach including more than 700 Home Depot stores from the Gulf Coast to New England.   The Home Depot is taking preemptive measures to protect residents from 2013 hurricane activity, which is once again predicted to be above average.

The Home Depot experts will cover critical hurricane readiness topics, such as storm prep projects, generator safety, sizing generators for specific home or business needs and assembling disaster preparedness kits. The workshops are free and open to the public. 

The Hurricane Preparedness Workshops are part of a larger initiative aimed at expanding The Home Depot's hurricane operating plan. The company has moved workshops farther north this year and increased its supply chain readiness in northern facilities, including a new rail-connected distribution center serving Long Island, Queens and Brooklyn.

The company also recently announced the opening of a unique satellite storm recovery location in Seaside Heights, NJ to support post-Sandy efforts.
