AtHomeNet Releases Hurricane Resource Guide

Web services company offers free resource guide for hurricane preparation to community and association managers

June 1, 2010

Suwanee, GA - AtHomeNet, Inc. ( a web services company in metro Atlanta is doing their part to educate homeowners and association managers about hurricane preparedness. To mark the beginning of hurricane season, the company has created a resource guide containing a sample action plan, hurricane statistics and ways to efficiently communicate in the event of a hurricane or other natural disaster.

"We realized that there was a need in the community and association management industry for a communication guide that gave advice and information about preparing for hurricanes and other natural disasters," noted Susan Sanders, CEO of AtHomeNet, Inc. "Providing our clients with the tools they need to effectively communicate with their residents is our primary goal-this guide is an extension of that goal."

The guide will be available on the AtHomeNet website and sent to areas commonly affected by these storms. Each year from June 1 to November 30, coastal areas of the United States and nearby islands are forced to prepare for the potential of disaster. Even though Hurricane Katrina devastated the southern US five years ago, the memory and the debt lingers. This category 3 storm wreaked havoc on the Gulf coast causing billions of dollars in damage.

The resource guide not only provides helpful tips, references and statistics, but showcases how a community's website can be a comprehensive communication tool in the case of an emergency. Community websites offer the ability to keep residents informed regardless of where they are, giving managers the ability to post status updates and photos, send email bulletins and other tools to provide up to the minute information and resources for their residents.
