JACKSON, Miss. – Rebuilding or repairing property damaged from the recent severe storms?  Residents in Jackson and Ridgeland can get advice on building safer and stronger this week from Federal Emergency Management Agency specialists.

FEMA mitigation specialists will be at two Jackson-area Lowe’s locations to offer information on rebuilding after a disaster. The advisors can answer questions about protecting homes from future disaster-related damage and offer tips to build hazard-resistant homes.

FEMA officials estimate that every dollar spent on mitigation can save almost four dollars if another disaster hits.

Homeowners and contractors can learn more at the following locations 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning Tuesday, July 22 and ending Saturday, July 26.


Lowe’s

2250 Greenway Dr.

Jackson MS 39204

This concludes FEMA mitigation outreach events at hardware and home improvement stores in Mississippi.
