Workshop to focus on rebuilding homes after disasters


Volunteer organizations that help rebuild homes after disasters are invited to a free workshop at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, in the Volusia Room at the Daytona Beach International Airport, 700 Catalina Drive, Daytona Beach.

Tim Smail, senior vice president of engineering and technical programs for the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH), will present the one-hour workshop titled “Build back better.”

He will highlight recently developed materials and recap joint programs undertaken by FLASH, FEMA and the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster Housing Committee. The three organizations are working to break the build-destroy-rebuild cycle by putting stronger-building information into volunteers’ hands.

FLASH, a nonprofit organization, is a leading consumer advocate for strengthening homes and safeguarding families from natural and man-made disasters.

Reservations are not required. For more information contact Pat White at or 386-258-4088, ext. 11245.
