As Texans repair or rebuild their homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey and subsequent flooding, FEMA and home improvement stores in Harris, Jefferson and Nueces counties are teaming up to provide free information, tips and literature on making homes stronger and safer.
FEMA mitigation specialists will be on hand to answer questions and offer tips and techniques to build hazard-resistant homes using proven methods that will prevent or reduce damage from future disasters. Most of the information and the free publications provided are geared to do-it-yourself work and general contractors.
Recovery topics covered include flood insurance, elevating utilities and rebuilding flooded homes. Free reference booklets with information on protecting a home from flood damage will be available.
