Your Home Is Your Castle. Local Disaster Experts Explain How To Protect It From Storms

May 31, 2018

Just two days before the official start of hurricane season, Florida International University hosted the world premiere Wednesday of “BUILT TO LAST?,” a documentary that warns of risks to homes and other buildings in “the age of disaster.”

“When someone loses their home, it’s like they’ve lost everything,” said Aris Papadopoulos, of FIU’s Extreme Events Institute, whose book, “Resilience – The Ultimate Sustainability,” inspired the film.

“It’s very important that people become more educated on what they can do, practical things they can do, to be resilient-smart consumers,” Papadopoulos said.
