Stay Safe Out There...
We wanted to put out some information to our customers and subscribers and let you all know that you can leverage the resources of Jigsaw Security during the Hurricane/Tropical Storm activity that has been primarily focused in the Carolina's the past several days. There are many roads that are flooded and many transportation related issues that have made travel in North Carolina and major I-95 corridors hazardous or impassable.
