Well, Brevard Shutters of Melbourne, FL would like to assure readers that hurricane shutters provide multiple benefits and are a great choice for anyone living in Florida.

Hurricane Shutters and Home Security | Hurricane Shutters in Palm Bay, FL
By their name alone, their purpose of serving as protection during a hurricane is obvious. But, they are also an addition to home security. As the world is still fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, there is very little travel occurring. Brevard Shutters often recommends to their customers to deploy their hurricane shutters while gone on vacation or even just for the weekend as they are a great deterrent for would-be burglars. Thieves generally aren’t going to take the time to try to disassemble a hurricane shutter to gain entrance into a home! But, with less traveling happening right now, one may wonder if they can still serve the additional purpose of home security. The answer is yes.
During times of crisis, people see differences in human behavior. Some people use the time to realign their priorities. They reach out to help others in need, such as dropping off groceries on the porches of elderly neighbors or sewing face masks to help keep everyone healthy. There is also the darker side of humanity which sometimes shows up during these times. For example, one local resident reports that her elderly neighbor received a scam call in which the person calling knew her first name and address, claimed to be her granddaughter, and said she was coming by in ten minutes with groceries. They believe it was an attempt to scam an elderly person out of money. That is humanity in its lowest form.
In an incident in California, in a small town of approximately 10,000 people, an elderly couple’s home was broken into, they were tied up, and their supplies (yes, toilet paper, included) were stolen. How horrible! Unfortunately, such people are out there. That is one reason hurricane shutters are still an excellent source of security during this time. It’s easy to want to have faith that the residents here on the east coast of Florida will not be subject to such a crime, but the phone call referenced above DID occur here, so it is a possibility. Particularly those who are elderly or live alone are urged to deploy their hurricane shutters as an additional source of security.
