Think you’re prepared for hurricane season? Take the quiz: What should you bring in from outside? In the case of power outage, how can you prepare your cold foods? When should you evacuate? What about Fido and Fluffy? Answers to these key questions – and many more – can be found at the new hurricane prep micro site sponsored by CGI Windows & Doors.


“Our priority is keeping people safe,” said Tom Riscili, president and CEO of CGI Windows and Doors. “We are an impact window manufacturer based in Miami, Florida – we know hurricanes. When a storm is knocking on your door – it’s past time to get ready. Our goal with this site is to help people think ahead, plan ahead, and go through the preparation process in a calm, thorough way.”

In addition to a preparedness quiz, the site offers:

  •     checklists and tips on what to accomplish before, during, and after a hurricane;
  •     up-to-date tools help to guide homeowners through the process;
  •     suggestions on how to care for their family, their pets, and their neighbors;
  •     simple retrofitting tips to strengthen the infrastructure of their home;
  •     key weather terms and phrases (watch v. warning);
  •     the five most overlooked safety needs in a hurricane;
  •     and so much more.

“There’s a famous anonymous quote, ‘By the time you hear the thunder, it’s too late to build the ark,’” continued Riscili. “We know when hurricanes are coming – there’s no element of surprise. We hope this site encourages people to take the time now, at the starts of hurricane season, to get ready. Preparedness = safety, which is always our number-one goal.”

Established in 1992, CGI Windows and Doors was the first manufacturer of hurricane windows and doors to offer laminated glass that met Miami-Dade County impact standards – the toughest in the country. Today, every window and door in the CGI product portfolio meets – and exceeds – Miami-Dade standards.
