The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has joined the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) for the 2016 Hurricane Awareness Tour. The tour has stops in Galveston, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana, Mobile, Alabama, and Naples, Florida where PCA will assist in educating the public in post-hurricane rescue and response.
This tour fits with PCA's longstanding advocacy for resilient building which would help communities in the aftermath of these storms:
“We cannot simply ignore the strong winds and hope that they’ll miss us,” said Donn Thompson, senior director of market development at PCA. “We have the technology and the resources to change the way we build, and mitigate both community destruction and economic losses.”
