Charlotte County to Distribute Free Tarps Oct. 7

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2017) – As part of a “Repair or Prepare” event, Charlotte County will distribute free tarps from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 7 at the Charlotte County Administration Center, 18500 Murdock Circle in Port Charlotte.

Each vehicle may receive two 20-foot-by-25-foot tarps. Tarps will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone. The surplus tarps were provided to the county by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which requested they be distributed rather than stored in its warehouse.

Water inundation is one of the costliest expenses associated with tropical storms due to the growth of mold in damaged homes without power for days after the storm passes. Timely repair of leaking roofs or windows can prevent further water and mold damage. Having tarps on hand before a storm strikes could enable hundreds of homeowners to avoid costly damage in the future.
