REDINGTON SHORES -- The annual hurricane awareness meeting for residents of Redington Shores will give special attention to how homeowners can strengthen their homes against tropical storms, town officials say. The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Town Hall, 17798 Gulf Blvd.
Speakers will include William York, of Applied Research Associates, a firm that provides consulting services to homeowners and commercial companies that want to strengthen homes or other buildings against tropical storms.
York will talk about how to increase the resistance of buildings after construction. Other speakers will be David Bilodeau, director of Pinellas County Emergency Management; Dean Jarvis of the Florida Home Builders Association; Rick Davis of Lloyd's Window Service; and Betti Johnson of the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council.
Several vendors will offer displays of products and services available for retrofitting homes and other structures against storm damage.
