The Home Depot hosts storm preparedness workshop

September 2020

The Home Depot, Atlanta, will be hosting a “Hurricane & Storm Preparedness Livestream Workshop” led by expert associates to help residents in storm-prone regions prepare and protect their families and homes for hurricanes, tornadoes and floods. As the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a record-high number of potential hurricanes through November, the new digital workshop will cover the essentials for staying safe this season and preparing one's family and home, including a resource checklist and helpful tips to minimize home damage leading up to and following any type of storm.

“We hope this season is calmer than expected, but there is no more important time for us to support our customers and communities than during natural disasters — now with tips through our expanded digital tools,” said Hector Padilla, president of The Home Depot's southern division. “Through these livestream workshops, The Home Depot experts — who themselves have lived in disaster-prone regions — will share their firsthand tips on preparing for storms and staying safe before and after disasters strike.”

The first Hurricane & Storm Preparedness Workshop will livestream beginning on Sept. 14, with a new broadcast airing weekly through the end of November. Registration is available at homedepot.com/workshops. During the class, a Home Depot associate will show viewers how to put together an emergency supply kit, take proper safety precautions, track storm trajectories, minimize home damage, safely use a generator, access resources from relief organizations, and provide information for potential repairs and recovery from an emergency.

This free livestreaming workshop is part of a new initiative by The Home Depot to share know-how with both adults and children without leaving their homes. On-demand how-to videos also are available on homedepot.com/workshops and will include the Hurricane & Storm Preparedness Workshop following the livestream. Additional tips about hurricane preparedness and safety can be found at homedepot.com/hurricane.
