Flooding in Huntsville and Madison County

Tara Adds to the Communities We Serve

Since we started, part of our mission at Tara, has been to contribute to the improvement of our community. Volunteering and contributing money and resources to local organizations helped us connect to our community. In 2015 we were inspired to expand the community we support. That year, we experienced a serious flood that left many local residents and employees without shelter. The Red Cross responded as soon as it happened. They helped many in our community by providing food, shelter and support. We were overwhelmed by the speed, the organization and the range of services the Red Cross was able to provide. This event motivated us to want to contribute to their disaster relief efforts in the future so they could help others, like they helpded us.

The Best Pool is a Safe Pool

Protect Children Pets

For playing, relaxing and entertaining outdoors, a swimming pool is the best addition you can make to your backyard. It’s the perfect place to spend time with your family and friends. As a pool owner, ensuring that your swimming pool is safe, is your most important responsibility. That can be difficult, though. Children and pets are vulnerable around a pool and you can’t supervise them all the time. Pool alarms and fences provide a level of protection but they can’t do it on their own. To effectively secure your pool, you should consider adding a pool safety cover. A safety cover will seal off your pool and prevent anyone or anything from falling in.
