Customer Service is something we usually think of when we call on a phone to ask questions for help. Home Depot is really stepping up and helping it's local communities by offering a free Hurricane preparedness workshops right in it's stores.
I found out about these workshops from FEMA through a campain where citizens and organizations have come together and are actively helping people learn about being prepared for severe weather.
The campaign through FEMA is called the "National Preparedness Community". I am a registered member and I use my blog and online resources to spread the word about the dangers of severe weather and what to do to be prepared.
These Workshops are being offered in the following states:
TX, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, SC, NC, VA, MD, DC, DE, NY, NJ, PA, RI, MA, NH, ME
I searched and found that there are (of course) many workshops available throughout the state of New Jersey. This makes sense considering how Hurricane Sandy affected the east coast.
Home Depot has stated that you should call your local store to make sure that they are offering the workshop.
Here is the link to the Home Depot Website for registering for the Free workshop:
