Sarasota, Florida -- With the approach of the hurricane season on June 1, the Florida Division of Emergency Management and Florida's Foundation are offering a series of webinars on what homeowners can do to prepare their homes to withstand high winds.

"The webinars are part of the county's mitigation program to reduce damage to homeowners' property," said Richard Kerkering, Sarasota County Emergency Management Planning Chief. "The webinars explain wind forces on houses and ways to strengthen the structures."

The website also contains a Homeowners Wind Mitigation booklet that explains techniques to avoid wind damage.
