East End town officials will hold a hurricane preparedness seminar next month with LIPA representatives in advance of the fall storm season.

Residents are invited to learn about ways to protect their homes and be ready for electrical and communication problems during storms, according to a news release.

Among the officials will be State Assemb. Fred Thiele Jr. (I-Sag Harbor), Shelter Island Town Supervisor Jim Dougherty, Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson, along with the Long Island Power Authority’s chief operating officer Michael Hervey.

The seminar will be at 6 p.m. July 26 at the Hampton Library, 2478 Main St., Bridgehampton.

“Preparing for the next hurricane or tropical storm should be of the utmost importance to East End families,” Thiele said in the release. “I encourage everyone to attend this free event.“
