News Release
ALEXANDRIA, La. -- As people rebuild from the severe storms and flooding that began Oct. 16, many who have been affected will seek contractors to help in the process. Most contractors have good reputations and are hard working individuals. Some people, however, try to take advantage of urgent repair needs in the event of a disaster. "Be especially alert for door-to-door solicitors who hand out make-shift flyers and ask for large cash deposits or advance payments in full," said Col. Thomas Kirkpatrick, state coordinating officer.
