HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED HERE, AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE FOUR CORNERS?

BK: I’ve lived in Durango for 21 years, I loved growing up here. It was the best as a kid to feel safe playing with my friends, roaming around in the outdoors, learning to ski and bike young, and being part of an amazing community.

KK: Over 20 years now! Real Estate is a full-time job. I love that I can take short trips to places that are unique and beautiful, such as Telluride and Santa Fe, New Mexico; but mostly, I love that I can carve out a couple hours and take an amazing bike ride through the Animas Valley, hop on a local trail for a quick hike or go paddleboarding, skiing, golfing in minutes. Seriously, what is not to love, if you love the outdoors?

TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

BK: We love the outdoors. In the summer, we’re hiking, biking, golfing, camping and playing in the river. In the winter, we’re skiing, snowshoeing and riding fat tire bikes. I have friends that I’ve known since childhood who have returned after college, as I did. And I also have friends that I’ve met through a tech company here. Those colleagues became my best friends, one of them being my boyfriend. Coming from different parts of the country, they all ended up buying homes and starting their families here, so amazing!

KK: We are so blessed that both of our adult daughters found their way back to Durango and to have Brooke work with me is really a dream come true! My mother and stepfather, and more recently my sister and brother-in-law, all migrated here from California. With our eldest daughter

10 SPRING 2023

recently married, our Durango family is growing. We enjoy cooking, and hosting family and friends at our home. It’s all about getting outdoors!

ARE YOU INVOLVED IN ANY ACTIVITIES, CLUBS, EVENTS OR ORGANIZATIONS?

BK: I’m an assistant swim coach for the Durango High School girls’ team. I grew up swimming here, so it’s been amazing to give back to the program that helped shape who I am today, and I love coaching the younger generation in life and the sport. I also teach swim lessons in the summer, which is very rewarding for me. It’s not only a very important life skill, but I’ve met so many incredible, driven, loving people in the sport.

KK: I enjoy supporting community events. Annually, we sponsor the Animas Valley Balloon Rally, Columbine Classical golf tournament, Durango Playfest and Women’s Resource Center, to name a few.

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WORKED IN REAL ESTATE?

BK: This is my second year in the industry. I work alongside my mother, Kelly Kniffin, who is in her 19th year in the industry and in the La Plata County market. She is so knowledgeable and incredible at what she does; I am proud and fortunate to learn from her every day. We have an awesome team!

KK: I was introduced to a real estate career not long after we moved to Durango. I have been in the industry for 20 years and 19 years licensed.

WHAT EDUCATION OR SPECIAL CERTIFICATIONS HAVE YOU COMPLETED?

BK: Since I’m new to the industry, I haven’t been able to get high certifications yet, but I plan to. So far, I have taken a handful of courses to stay on top of the new contracts, laws and the industry as a whole- things evolve quickly!

KK: I wanted to learn all I could to best serve my clients. Early on I earned my CRS - Certified Residential Specialist as I believe this is the top designation and the hardest to achieve, it takes additional education and a substantial dollar

volume of transactions to acquire. I also have completed the following: ABR- Accredited Buyers Representative, GRI- Graduate of Real Estate Institute, CNE- Certified Negotiation Expert, RCC -Residential Construction Certified and SRS –Seller Representative Specialist.

DO YOU REPRESENT BUYERS, SELLERS OR BOTH? WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO HELPING EACH?

KK: I believe the most valuable real estate agents represent both. Our business is pretty much equal volume on both sides. It’s much easier to counsel a seller when you understand where the buyers are, what their thinking, buying trends etc. Even though homes for the most part are still selling quickly we treat them all the same and the prelisting work often takes longer than the days on market these days! We work with our resources to make each house shine with the best video and photography available to us.

HOW CAN YOU HELP POTENTIAL BUYERS OR SELLERS COMPETE?

KK: Buyers should ask their prospective agent how many buyers they’ve successfully closed, especially during the pandemic selling years. It was easy to sell listings then, but with so much competition it took an experienced buyer’s agent willing to work fast with resources and strong relationships to get offers accepted and closed. We still are not seeing much competition on the seller side. However, it is imperative to price homes correctly. We take pricing very seriously. It’s true that pricing a home too high to start can ultimately bring a lower sales price. We bring our clients extensive market research and experience, to help them price spot on, we strive to obtain full price or higher.

ANY ADVICE TO OFFER ALL NEW RESIDENTS TO THE AREA?

KK: Find what you love, and you will find others to share it with! As I see it, the people moving to Durango are attracted to Durango for the same reasons, and like us, mostly for the lifestyle. If you like to hike, golf, cycle, ski, climb, you will find your peeps!

~ INTERIOR DESIGN ~ What to know about window treatments

WINDOW TREATMENTS ADD A SPLASH OF PERSONALITY TO ANY SPACE. In addition to style, window treatments can increase a home’s efficiency and privacy. Whether searching for panels that block out sunlight in bedrooms or sheer fabric to let natural light inside, experts say there are plenty of options for any occasion.

BLINDS, CURTAINS AND DRAPES, OH MY!

There are two factors to consider when choosing window treatments. First, how much light do you want to let inside the home? Second, how does the style of fabric fit into the rest of the room design?

Traditionally, blinds and shades fit inside the window frame. The difference is that blinds are made of materials such as bamboo and vinyl, while shades can be fabric.

Curtains and drapes can come in a variety of styles. From cotton and linen to silk and velvet, curtains can add color, patterns and texture to a room. Made with lined panels, drapes help to diffuse or block natural light.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Hiring a business or interior designer can take the guesswork out of installing and hanging drapery, especially for homeowners that desire custom curtains or motorized blinds and smart shades. However, it can also be an easy project if you have some basic tools and a little time.

MEASURE ACCURATELY

First, take note of window measurements. For blinds and shades, measure the length and width of the window inside the frame. For curtains and drapes, note the length and width again from where you want to mount the rod. Homeowners often place curtain rods an average of six inches above the window edge. For curtains to feel full, double the width of the windows to determine the size of the curtains.

Tip: Try using a framing square or a solid object, such as a block of wood or piece of cardboard, to get measurements exactly right on both sides of the window. Using a template creates a cohesive feel and saves time when working with multiple windows in the home.

INSTALL NECESSARY HARDWARE

While the hardware is necessary, it can also be either completely invisible or a decorative detail that ties the design together. Blinds and shades require brackets. Install a plastic, metal or wooden rod to suspend curtains and drapes. A curtain rod should be about a foot longer than the width of the window to allow space to pull curtains to the side. Use previous window measurements to select a curtain rod that is the appropriate length, and consider whether the rod can withstand the weight.

Tip: Before installing hardware, use a tool, such as a stud finder, to identify potential hazards and safe places to mount the hardware. Consider using wall anchors to secure heavy window treatments.

~ ON THE COVER ~

Glacier is an ecosystem that marries highend real estate and luxurious living with instant access to outdoor recreation. Thanks to expert planning, this private mountain community maintains a harmonious balance with its natural environment.

Bordering the San Juan National Forest in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Glacier is best known for its world-class golfing. The property boasts two beautiful courses, each with practice parks and full-service clubhouses. For an estimated 180 families, Glacier is also an incredible oasis to call home.

GROWING GLACIER

Originally developed in the 1970s, the property known as Glacier today included hotel accommodations, a convention center, meeting facilities, a ski area and the 18-hole Valley Course. In 2001, Rick Carlton purchased the property with the vision to create a low-density, luxury housing on this unique property carved by glaciers, inspiring its name.

Since that time, Glacier has slowly, but steadily crafted neighborhoods nestled among ancient ponderosa pines at 7,400 feet in the San Juan

AUDUBON SOCIETY COOPERATIVE SANCTUARY

Only 850 golf courses around the world are certified as Audubon Society Cooperative Sanctuaries, and Glacier is one of them. It implemented practices to enhance the environment, such as reducing the use of chemicals to maintain the golf course and monitoring water quality. The developers also planted wildflowers, which attract pollinators and installed bird houses.

Mountains. While the property encompasses 1,000 acres, Glacier dedicated 500 acres to open space and nature preservation as an Audubon Society Cooperative Sanctuary.

As part of a grand mountain ecosystem, developers at Glacier worked to reduce its environmental impact through green initiatives, too. Solar energy covers 96% of energy use of the offices, maintenance facilities, wastewater treatment plant and the Valley Clubhouse. Roughly 20% of the water used on the golf course is reclaimed. Other initiatives include implementing a community-wide recycling program and reducing local food waste through partnership with Table to Farm compost.

HIGH-END IN THE HIGH COUNTRY

Whether buyers prefer a lock-and-leave lifestyle, or value peace and privacy, Glacier has options to fulfill a host of housing desires. To understand client needs, Glacier Realty managing broker Mike Gullotti coordinates with potential buyers. Office manager Madison Smith said they work with builders, such as Cerwin Homes and Mantell-Hecathorn Builders, that are familiar with the terrain to maximize the buyer’s satisfaction.

“They’re the best of the best,” Smith said. “So they’re going to do everything possible to make the owners comfortable.”

Properties feature a range of coveted and contemporary characteristics, such as modern finishes and spacious interiors. Large windows let natural light saturate the interior, while residents take in the scenic views.

In 2021, Glacier broke ground on its latest estate, Etta Ridge, which is currently under construction. When completed, Etta Ridge will include five buildings with six halffloor residences per building. At the time of publication, Smith said buildings one through three were sold out, and they were working on selling the final four units of building four. “We’re probably in the height of development,” Smith said. “Etta Ridge is our biggest development project.”

Construction is on-going for Summit homesites and Iron Horse cabins, while future plans for “Area J” will feature homes designed by Michael Pierson.

In addition to high-end real estate, Glacier maintains a variety of amenities and services that make life easier for residents, such as onsite dining and fitness facilities. However, its proximity to pristine vistas and access to outdoor activities is unrivaled.

OASIS FOR OUTDOOR RECREATION

“The architects focus on home designs to maximize privacy by thoughtful window placement and landscaping design,” said Glacier Realty managing broker Mike Gullotti. “We keep as many trees as possible on the lots aiding in privacy for single family homes.”

This thriving community provides the convenience of suburban living in a rural setting. At the onset of the pandemic, Smith said she noticed demand driving plans for future clubhouse renovations and new development. And due to the popularity of remote work, Glacier has a more diverse demographic.

“With the increase in remote work nationwide, and our highly efficient Fiber1 internet, we’ve seen an influx of prospects from surrounding cities eager to live in mountain towns who can now do so without being chained to an office in a specific city,” Smith said.

Residents enjoy biking and walking the variety of natural-surface trails and paved paths. Fishing ponds stay stocked with trout for anglers to catch and release. People gather to grill out and spend time at the pool, or challenge one another to a round of pickleball or tennis on the courts.

Best of all, Glacier is located just 10 miles south of Purgatory Resort, and 20 miles north of downtown Durango. Minutes away from Haviland and Electra Lakes, where adventure-seekers can find opportunities to fish, paddle and explore trails in the San Juan National Forest.

Boosting credit score

PROSPECTIVE HOMEBUYERS MUST TAKE ACTION to set themselves up for long-term success. Since time and resources are limited, finding the right balance of priorities when considering buying a home is crucial. Boosting a credit score as high as possible is one of the earliest priorities to address, and it is also relatively straightforward.

CREDIT COUNTS

When looking over loan applicants, lenders will consider various aspects of the applicant’s financial life. Income, debt and other factors will all play into what loan the lender chooses to offer, from the total amount they are willing to lend, to the interest that will be paid on the loan.

A credit score is like a snapshot of someone’s financial history. Although it doesn’t include every detail, it will inform the lender of important information, such as late or missed payments on bills and loans, the borrower’s overall debt to available credit ratio, and recent credit inquiries. Any of these items can be seen as a risk factor, and ensuring these things stay in the proper range raises and maintains a good credit score.

PROMPT PAYMENTS

One of the primary things to bring into immediate alignment is ensuring monthly payments are made on time. This can be for anything from credit cards to utility bills. When payments on bills are late, the credit bureaus are

42 SPRING 2023

informed. This negatively impacts a credit score substantially and takes a long time to correct.

One of the fundamental things to address is budgeting. Ensuring enough money is set aside from income to cover bills is essential. There are a variety of tools that can help with this, including budgeting apps and automating bill payments online.

CREDIT CARDS

Credit cards are a double-edged sword. Although they add lines of credit to the overall history, each credit check that a credit card company does when you apply for a new account will add to an overall score. Having a manageable balance on a credit card is also essential.

Online tools and applications can help determine the perfect zone regarding credit card accounts and balances. Finding the sweet spot can add significant numbers to a credit score. One easy thing to do is keep credit utilization below 30% of the maximum. For instance, a credit card with a limit of $1,000 should not exceed a $300 balance whenever possible.

Another tip is to keep old lines of credit open even if not in use. This will lengthen one’s credit history and improve the debt-to-credit ratio.

There are also secured cards for those who need to start a line of credit but are not eligible for regular accounts. These cards require a security deposit that acts as collateral for the account. Sometimes this is the only option, but it can be the beginning of building a solid credit score when used responsibly.

CREDIT BUREAUS

The United States has three primary credit bureaus: TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. These credit bureaus receive reports about everyone’s financial history, including debt-tocredit ratio, missed payments, credit checks and more. These institutions rate one’s credit score from 300-850, with a high number equating to a better score.

These credit bureaus also offer information to help with things like simulating future activities and how they will impact a score, such as missing a payment or applying for a new credit card.

It is also recommended to contact these bureaus if one believes any inconsistent or incorrect information is in a credit history. Although sometimes time-consuming, scrubbing inaccurate missed payment reports and other items are well worth the effort.

BENEFITS BEYOND BUYING

A good credit score is vital for purchasing a home, but good credit has other benefits too. In addition to better loan options, you will have access to more favorable rates with other loans and credit cards. Insurance premiums are also likely to be lower, as many companies use the score to determine their rates. Better job opportunities and home rental options will also open up as many landlords and employers run credit checks on potential renters. All of these things can help ease and streamline the path toward owning a home.

The future is worth investment. Creating and maintaining a good credit score will pay dividends that greatly outweigh the effort you will put into this proven strategy.

~ BLUEPRINTS ~ A long-standing legacy

EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN DISPLAYS EXPERIENCE

IBUILDING AWARD-WINNING HOMES IS BOTH AN ART AND A SCIENCE. For Mantell-Hecathorn Builders, experience building custom homes in a variety of environments established a foundation for a longstanding legacy.

In the 1970s, Greg and Tara Mantell-Hecathorn embarked on a home-building journey that would gain national acclaim when he founded MantellHecathorn Builders, a construction company now based in Durango.

“Mantell-Hecathorn Builders was originally started in Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1975 by my parents, Greg and Tara Mantell-Hecathorn,” said Hunter Mantell-Hecathorn. “After 13 years in Fairbanks and 18 years in the California bay area, they decided to relocate to Durango, where I lived after attending Fort Lewis College. Durango checked many boxes: the small-town feel; access

to trails, mountains, skiing and camping; and the opportunity to bring a unique building philosophy mainly focused on using building science techniques for high-performance homes.”

Continuing the legacy of excellence, Hunter Mantell-Hecathorn, the current president of the company, manages daily operations and ensures the execution of building projects. With over 20 years of experience, his knowledge, expertise and integrity give homeowners confidence in the scientific workmanship that Mantell-Hecathorn Builders provides.

“We truly believe that clear, consistent and seamless communication between the architect, designer and builder makes projects run smoothly and create a comprehensive and very efficient experience for the client,” MantellHecathorn said. “Being involved from inception allows us to provide feedback on the design that can increase efficiency and incorporate elements such as window size and placement as well as home orientation.”

Mantell-Hecathorn Builders has established a remarkable track record over the past 48 years. For the first 13 years in Fairbanks, the company built new homes in a challenging climate region. For 18 years in Orinda, California, it completed comprehensive home renovations, constructed custom homes, and became recognized as a top builder for clients with the highest standards.

46 SPRING 2023

After 17 years in Durango, Mantell-Hecathorn has maintained their position as a top designbuild firm by prioritizing personal attention to detail for every client and delivering certified quality in every project.

Mantell-Hecathorn Builders offers various services, but the building science and quality of construction are always the same regardless of whether designing a compact, craftsman-style home or a contemporary estate. The company is currently only taking on three to four custom home projects per year. In the past, the team has contributed to a variety of residential and commercial remodels and tenant improvements. Their team of experienced builders and contractors work closely with clients to ensure their unique project vision is brought to life.

Though many projects are remarkable, the team at Mantell-Hecathorn Builders identified a few of their favorite jobs from this region.

“We have been able to work with amazing clients on some fantastic projects over the years; it would be impossible to try to choose a favorite,” Mantell-Hecathorn observed. “ However, our most recently completed project in the Red Rocks Subdivision in the Animas Valley won the 2022 Parade of Homes Overall Winner, Sustainability Award and $1-1.5M Category. We hold pride in knowing each of our projects showcases our ability to build

beautiful, high-performance homes ranging in architectural design.”

Because of their exceptional work, MantellHecathorn Builders has received numerous awards and recognitions. They are a member of the Home Builders Association of Southwest Colorado and received the organization’s “Builder of the Year” award multiple times. The Durango Herald readers voted MantellHecathorn into the top three of the “Best Home Builder Category” for four years running.

Mantell-Hecathorn Builders frames themselves as community builder as well as home builder. The company frequently works with nonprofits and local governments to serve the region’s housing needs. They have built a strong reputation for championing the community with education, trustworthiness and efficiency as their guiding principles.

“We have been involved in local and state organizations to support increasing building codes and standards to raise the efficiency and comfort of all homes in our community,” Mantell-Hecathorn said. “Focusing on craftsmanship and high-performance homes, our business has always been conscious of putting very well-made, healthy and beautiful homes in our community.”

What to know about insurance coverage

HOMEOWNERS

INSURANCE ISN’T

A LUXURY. It’s a necessity. Insurance isn’t just for the protection it offers you and your home, it’s also a prerequisite for lenders.

The majority of mortgage companies require borrowers to have insurance coverage, usually in the amount of the purchase price. In most cases, your lender won’t make a loan or finance a real estate transaction without proof of insurance.

So, whether shopping for insurance for a newly purchased home or looking for lower rates on a current policy, homeowners need coverage.

UNDERSTANDING COVERAGE NEEDS

Before shopping for homeowners insurance, try to estimate how much coverage you need. Factors to consider include the total replacement cost of the house, as well as the types of natural disasters the home is most likely to encounter. The following components are in every standard home insurance policy.

Dwelling Coverage should be equal to the cost of replacing the home, or how much it would cost

to rebuild the home in the event it was destroyed. Personal Property Coverage is typically anywhere from 50–75% of the dwelling coverage. Loss of Use Coverage is typically 20% of the dwelling coverage limit. People that live in an area that experiences frequent natural disasters should consider additional loss of use coverage. Liability and Medical Coverage should cover a guest’s hospital bills if injured on your property.

ADDITIONAL COVERAGES

Depending on where you live in Southwest Colorado, you may experience frequent flooding or mudslides, so be sure to add flood coverage. Other coverage endorsements to consider for this region are water backup coverage, equipment breakdown coverage and service line coverage.

NECESSARY DETAILS

Whether shopping online or in person, there are a few details homeowners need in order to get an accurate quote. The more details available, the more accurate the quote. Shoppers will need the physical address of the property being insured as well as its square footage. Have all personal information, such as your social security number handy. If you have any prior insurance inspection information be sure to bring that along.

COMPARE QUOTES

Compare quotes from different companies to determine the best rate. The best practice here is to analyze a variety of options so you’re able to do a proper comparison. The price isn’t everything. Cheap isn’t always best when selecting insurance. The amount quoted isn’t always the amount paid. Do a little digging, and shoppers may find that the “cheap” policy is full of exclusions and low coverage limits. To meet coverage needs with a discount policy, premiums may end up being far higher than what customers were led to believe.

Small renovations that can make a big impact

HOME RENOVATIONS

PROVIDE A HOST OF BENEFITS. Such projects can increase resale value and improve on the safety, aesthetics and functionality of a home.

Some homeowners may employ the mantra “go big or go home” when they embark on home improvements, thinking that only the largest renovations produce noticeable change. But that’s not the case. Various smaller renovations can provide a lot of bang for homeowners’ bucks as well.

COUNTERTOPS (AND HARDWARE): A complete kitchen overhaul may stretch some homeowners’ budgets. However, changing an older countertop for a new material can provide the facelift a kitchen needs. And while changing the cabinets may be homeowners’ ultimate goal, swapping hardware in dated finishes for newer handles and pulls can provide low-cost appeal.

PAINT: Painting a space is an inexpensive improvement that adds maximum impact. Paint can transform dark and drab rooms into bright and airy oases. Paint also can be used to create an accent wall or cozy nooks. Homeowners also can showcase their personalities with their choice of paint colors.

LIGHTING: Homeowners should not underestimate what a change in lighting can do. When rooms or exterior spaces are illuminated,

they take on entirely new looks. It’s worth it to invest in new lighting, whether it’s a dramatic hanging light over the dining room table or task lighting in dim spaces.

WEATHERPROOFING:

Improving windows, doors, weatherstripping, and insulation in a home can offer visual appeal and help homeowners save money. The initial investment may be significant, but those costs will pay off in energy savings. According to One Main Financial, space heating is the largest energy expense the average American homeowner has, accounting for around 45 percent of all energy costs.

MUDROOM: Turn an entryway into a more functional space with the addition of cabinets, benches or custom-designed storage options that perfectly fit the area. Cubbies and cabinets can corral shoes, umbrellas, hats, bags, and much more.

ACCENT UPDATES: Any space, whether it’s inside or outside a home, can get a fresh look with new decorative accents. Invest in new throw pillows and even slipcovers for living room sofas. Use new tile or paint the brick on a fireplace in a den, then update the mantel with decorative displays. Purchase wall art that can bring different colors into a room. Change the cushions on deck furniture and buy colorcoordinated planters.

54 SPRING 2023
These subtle changes will not cost as much as full-scale renovations, but they can still help individuals transform their homes.

SAFE SPACES ~

Take steps to prepare for emergencies

COLORADO HAS SEEN ITS FAIR SHARE OF NATURAL DISASTERS. From floods to forest fires, preparing for emergencies can help families stay safe in a variety of circumstances. Fortunately, local organizations offer opportunities for residents to learn more about natural disasters, and how to be prepared for the unexpected.

San Juan Basin Public Health helps community members prepare for emergency evacuations. The organization offers educational resources covering a variety of topics, including flooding, extreme heat and severe weather.

Creating a kit of essential items is one example of an action homeowners can take to prepare for disasters. Preparing a box of items in advance can help individuals avoid a stressful scramble in an emergency. SJBPH recommends stocking up on any necessary medications, extra cash, shelf-stable foods, clothing, and personal documentation.

If evacuation protocols are in place for a natural disaster, grab your emergency kit of essential items and leave a note in the home for first responders. The note should include contact information for authorities, the number of people that live in the household and where the residents plan to stay. This way, first responders can confirm that a family is in a safe place. They can also use this information to contact the residents when it is safe to return.

Sign up for free emergency alerts from regional emergency management organizations to stay informed.

To register for La Plata County’s emergency notification system, create a Code Red account online at https:// public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/BFEA18547A8D.

To register for Montezuma County or San Juan County in northern New Mexico emergency alerts through Nixle, simply text your zip code to 888777.

If evacuation orders come from flooding, turn off lights and lock the doors when leaving the property. Avoid moving water, even if it does not seem like much. As little as six inches of water can sweep someone off their feet or move a car. In cases of extreme heat, the most important precaution is to stay hydrated. Try to limit outdoor activities for the family and pets. Keep enough water on hand for everyone and attempt to stay cool. Venture to an air-conditioned establishment, such as a cafe, mall or recreation center to cool off, even if it is just for a few hours.

Durango Fire Protection District hosts a series of five classes open to the public for free twice a year. Durango Fire Community Education Coordinator John Constan said the purpose of these classes is to educate homeowners in ways to reduce the risk of property loss due to wildfires. It can also help landlords to protect themselves, their tenants and their properties.

“The first class focuses on creating a defensible space that reduces fire hazards around a home,” Constan said. “The second class helps homeowners prepare for a wildfire and plan for a potential evacuation under a Wildfire Action Plan. The final class explains the work done by local and federal wildland firefighting crews.”

Finally, make plans for navigating severe weather. Establish a plan in advance of an emergency and inform every member of the household. Run at least one practice drill so that everyone understands how to proceed. Having a practiced plan will help create a calming environment in a time that can be very stressful.

It’s easy to access educational materials to help you create and manage an emergency plan. Furthermore, community communications can keep residents abreast of new developments. Ultimately, preparation is the key to staying safe in any emergency.
