GARAGE DOOR AND HOME SECURITY

Posted on by Preferred Doors in Garage Doors Leave a comment

Preferred Doors offers the following garage and home safety tip.

Do you sometimes have your car valet parked? If you do, consider securing your garage door remote. If it “disappears” and if your vehicle registration lists your home address, you could have a security issue.

  • Never leave the remote control in the car or with a parking attendant. It should be treated like a house key. Consider a keychain remote.
  • If your opener does not have rolling-code technology system, be sure to change the manufacturer’s standard access codes on the operator and remote control.
  • Keep your blinds, shades, and curtains in their normal position so you do not bring attention to being gone.
  • Always lock the door from the garage to the inside of your home. It is a small inconvenience for safety and security.
  • Ask a neighbor to park in your driveway so it looks as if someone is home.

NOAA Expects Busy Atlantic Hurricane Season

Posted on by Preferred Doors in WindLoad Leave a comment

May 27, 2010

An “active to extremely active” hurricane season is expected for the Atlantic Basin this year according to the seasonal outlook issued today by NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center – a division of the National Weather Service. As with every hurricane season, this outlook underscores the importance of having a hurricane preparedness plan in place.

Across the entire Atlantic Basin for the six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAA is projecting a 70 percent probability of the following ranges:

  • 14 to 23 Named Storms (top winds of 39 mph or higher), including:
  • 8 to 14 Hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or higher), of which:
  • 3 to 7 could be Major Hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of at least 111 mph)

“If this outlook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge everyone to be prepared.” Read more
