Get ready for summer with a roll off container rental or junk hauling service from R&R containers.
Memorial Day means two things to Americans. First and foremost, it is a day when we pause to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Graves are decorated, flags are flown at half-staff, and moments of silence are observed all over this great country. Few people know that Memorial Day was invented in Georgia. It was observed for the first time in Columbus in 1866.
Memorial day also marks the unofficial start of summer, and severe summer weather is just around the corner. The official start to hurricane season is June 1, and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted an above average number of storms. They expect we’ll see 5-9 hurricanes, 11-17 named storms, and 2-4 major hurricanes (storms with wind speeds greater than 111 mph). What all this means, unfortunately, is that we may be in for quite a bit of storm damage.
Preparing for Severe Weather
Before the severe weather hits, it’s worth taking some time to evaluate your preparedness. Every home should have an emergency plan and emergency preparedness kit. For a list of what to put in your kit, take a look at www.ready.gov/kit.
One of the biggest dangers to both people and property during a severe weather event is falling trees. Now is a good time to evaluate the health of the trees on your property. If any of them turn out to be an accident waiting to happen, roll off container or junk hauling services from R&R containers are a great way to help nip the problem in the bud.
If you do end up having a tree fall on your property, keep us in mind. We’ll make your roll off container rental or junk hauling services as easy and stress free as possible so you can get back to normal life. Also, don’t forget to check with your insurance company, as the cost of tree removal as well as any damage they might cause could be covered.
