Check out our store for energy conservation books and online training for energy auditors and other job skills. Whether you are in the path of a hurricane or living in an area where tornadoes can occur, our book helps you by giving you clues on what to watch out for and what to do to help your home’s wind resistance.
With a hurricane, you need to take some steps to help protect your home, before you evacuate. Inspect and improve the anchors and tie-downs on your mobile home.  Make sure they are rated for the types of winds you can expect for whatever area you are living in. Reinforce the wall joints at the floor and ceiling.  Leaking can occur during the high winds and rain of a hurricane, so having these areas reinforced and sealed will help alleviate this problem.
A generator can have enough power to run a few lights in your home, as well as appliances like the refrigerator. Being smart is the key to staying safe when returning to an area that has been hit by a hurricane.
Talk to your family and make sure everyone knows what to do and where to go in the event of a hurricane. Listen to local authorities for what to do during the storm and be ready to prepare your home.


Hurricanes can bring many hazards to an area, downed power lines, gas leaks, contaminated water, etc.
You may also want to buy a garage door brace kit and straps to secure your roof to the frame of your home.
Returning to your home too soon can be dangerous for you and your family, as unseen hazards may still exist. When a hurricane is headed your way, turn off the utilities in your home, including gas, water, and electricity. Do not use tap water to drink or cook and use flashlights instead of candles for light in case of gas. You never know what the hurricane season will hold, so it is best to know what to do in the case of a hurricane, record breaking storm or not. There are two options for you during a hurricane: evacuating your area or sheltering in place.
The Atlantic hurricane season officially begins on June 1st and lasts until the 30th of November.
This will prevent gas leaks and electrical surges that might be dangerous for your family and damaging to your home.


The Pacific hurricane season begins a few weeks earlier on May 15th and also lasts until the 30th of November. You can keep all of these items in your safe room if you are staying in your home or pack them up in your car if you need to evacuate. Start preparing during the off-season months of December through May and be ready for any storm that may come. These supplies will need to last you for three days and be stocked and ready to go as soon as you need it. If you are in an evacuation zone, have a map of the area stored with your emergency supplies and make sure you know the evacuation route for your area.
