National -

NORTH LITTLE ROCK – (RealEstateRama) — Teams of specialists from FEMA will offer tips and techniques to lessen the impact of future disaster-related property damage at building supply stores in three Arkansas locations Thursday, Feb. 25 – March 1, 2016.

The teams will be at these Lowe’s stores:

  • Jefferson County: 2906A E. Harding Ave., Pine Bluff
  • Faulkner County: 1325 Hwy. 64W, Conway
  • Benton County: 1100 NW Lowes Ave., Bentonville

Teams will be at each location from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday – Tuesday except for Sunday. Hours on Sunday are from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

FEMA specialists offer “how-to” information on both retrofitting buildings to make them more resistant to weather damage and ways to elevate utilities against flooding. They also provide tips to clean and help prevent mold and mildew.

Many of the tips and techniques are specifically geared for the do-it-yourselfer and for building contractors. If you have a disability and need an accommodation to access materials such as Braille, large print, or ASL interpreters please let our representatives know.

FEMA offers a number of free online resources for home and property owners. To get started, go to
