DON'T GET SCAMMED

A disaster leaves more than torn shingles and uprooted lives in its wake. The winds also can blow in armies of fly-by-night contractors and door-to-door scam artists eager to capitalize on the misfortunes of innocent people.

KEEP IT LOCAL

This is always good advice. Our local contractors will be stressed, but if you can we always advise you to try to use local resources during your recovery.
