The Home Depot is offering new and enhanced resources for natural disaster preparedness and is encouraging customers to prepare early for all natural disasters, including hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and wildfires.
A variety of digital resources and tools to help guide customers throughout a natural disaster, from critical readiness topics to storm recovery and disaster relief, are now available on HomeDepot.com. The online experience includes:
The Home Depot Weather Center Hub: Access the online destination for resources surrounding natural disasters on homedepot.com/weathercenter, including a new Storm Preparedness supply checklist ranging from flashlights and tie-downs to insurance information and baby food. The Home Depot Weather Center also curates information from government agencies and The Home Depot Foundation partners, like The American Red Cross.
Disaster Preparedness Workshops: The Home Depot offers free livestream and on-demand classes, including a Hurricane & Preparedness Workshop and an all-new Wildfire Preparedness Workshop led by Home Depot experts. The 60-minute online workshops will begin in June and registration will be available on homedepot.com/workshops.
