WTOC, Home Depot team up for 2014 Hurricane Expo

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Home Depot, WTOC-TV and local and state agencies will be part of 2014 Savannah Hurricane Preparedness Expo on Saturday. 

The expo will focus on basic preparations that can help homeowners, renters or businesses avoid major damage to their property from severe weather. Experts will be on hand to talk about home inventories, installing hurricane shutters and preparing for an evacuation.  

Representatives from insurance companies, tree services and restoration companies will also be available to discuss how to expedite the claims process.  

"It is being prepared and not just buying stuff at the store but having all your important documents to take with you, making a list where you are going to stay. You cant stay in Savannah if it is flooded. We are going beyond the merchandise to the point of having everything you need," said Martin Libechner, Home Depot sales associate.

Home Depot experts will cover critical hurricane readiness topics, including 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. Workshops will be held at the following Home Depot stores in Savannah: The Home Depot at 1901 E. Victory Dr., and The Home Depot at 11180 Abercorn St.

Workshops will be held on Saturday, June 14 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
