OKLAHOMA CITY – Property owners who are looking to rebuild or repair their homes and businesses are invited to a free event that focuses on improving energy efficiency and storm resistance.

The free Rebuild Expo will be at Westmoore High School from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 3.

The expo was organized to help those who are rebuilding homes or businesses from the May storms but anyone is invited to attend.

“Several organizations will be under one roof to answer questions homeowners have about rebuilding,” T.O. Bowman said, Oklahoma City’s Office of Sustainability program coordinator. “Types of information offered will include energy-efficient construction, consumer protection, water quality and health concerns, as well as personal examples of resilient recoveries from tornado-damaged communities like Joplin, Missouri, and Greensburg, Kansas.”

A series of presentations begins at noon.
