FEMA to Give Free Advice to Re-builders of Tornado-Torn Structures

(8-11-14) Anyone Rebuilding or fixing property damaged in recent tornadoes can get some free expert advice. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will have specialists on duty this week in Beaver Crossing and Seward.

Their mission will be to answer questions about safe rooms and the best ways of protecting homes from future disaster-related damage. They'll be able to visit and they'll have free publications available.  FEMA officials say that every dollar spent on strengthening buildings and avoiding damage can save almost four dollars if another disaster hits.

The specialists will be available this Thursday through next Tuesday. They'll be at Beaver Hardware in Beaver Crossing and Seward Lumber in Seward.
