From Your Sheriff:

This posting is to alert you about scams that typically follow the aftermath of natural disasters.  Please use caution when dealing with companies that show up at your home unannounced to provide services like roofing, tree service, debris removal… Do your homework and be certain that the company is bonded, insured and reputable.  Never pay a company upfront for work, and be leary of those who request payment in cash.  Also look for those who require no contracts or use high-pressure sales tactics to get you to use their company.

If you have any questions about the reputability of any company, please feel free to contact Sheriff Burkhalter at 706-314-6218 or email him at
