BETHEL, Vt. -

Surviving Tropical Storm Irene's damage is inspiring Bethel to step up its emergency preparations.

The town is having emergency management teams visit each home to give families tips on how to protect their property from natural disasters.

The teams are also giving advice on how to equip homes before a disaster strikes.

Bethel is also using a free smartphone app so people can send emergency messages during a disaster.
