We would like to say a special thanks to our 3 guest speakers - Charlie Strickland, Jon Rocafort, and Chris Durfee.
Charlie Strickland of Talon Range
Charlie was originally scheduled to speak at our September meeting but due to Irma, we had to reschedule him. Charlie spoke about the importance of being prepared for emergencies. The worst time to plan for your safety and your family's well being is when a Hurricane is bearing down on the area. We discussed generators, water, food, fuel, and other items needed for safety, comfort, and hygiene.
Jon's discussion was about how to quickly determine if the panel box in a potential purchase needed to be upgraded. He showed us two examples of panel boxes that would need to be upgraded. He also showed us an overloaded panel box that had caught on fire. From Charlie's discussion, he answered lots of questions about installing generators - portable ones and permanent ones. There was a discussion about how an improperly hooked up generator could endanger a lineman who is fixing power outages. Jon has recently hooked up 4 generators for our members.
Chris continued the "being prepared" theme of the meeting by discussing wind mitigation, roofs, and insurance companies. He discussed how roofs needed to be installed to keep them from blowing away during storms. Then he talked about what home inspectors look for when they perform inspections. Also that a 4 point inspection was the BEST to turn into your insurance agency and why. He offered a great deal to TIN members on a 4 point and wind mitigation inspections. Call him for more information.
We had a number of members stand up to say they had completed a renovation on a house and were looking for more houses to buy for rental.
Wholesalers, we need you!
