Local company reminds residents to prepare in case disaster strikes.

The 2023 Atlantic hurricane season begins this week, June 1, and Bunnell-based hurricane shutter company, Smart Guard Shutters, urges Flagler County residents to prepare.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts another “near normal” Atlantic hurricane season. NOAA predicts 12 to 17 total named storms in 2023. Of those, five to nine could become hurricanes, of which one to four could become major hurricanes.

“We want our community to be prepared for hurricanes in all aspects of their homes not just covering their windows and doors,” said Kaleigh Rickard, owner of Smart Guard Shutters. “With hurricane season beginning this week, we urge Flagler County residents to prepare. Flagler County was impacted by two different storms last year, which serves as a reminder that preparedness is key.”

Because you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs you should prepare supplies for your home, work, and even your vehicles. Richard Rickard, Owner of Smart Guard Shutters stated “Now would also be a great time for everyone to ensure that their shutters are working properly or investigate getting shutters if they have not already. If you have shutters, you should open/close and clean the shutters at least once every 6 months if inland or 3 months if oceanside and lubricate the tracks with a dry lube spray.”

Smart Guard Shutters located in Bunnell, FL,  is a local family-owned hurricane shutter company that offers many types of hurricane protection: Panels, Hurricane Fabric, Accordion Shutters, Rolling Shutters, Impact-Rated Bahama Shutters, and Colonial Shutters. Most of the shutters are manufactured locally at their warehouse.
