September is National Preparedness Month
- Be informed
- make a plan for any emergency you could face
- Build an emergency kit
- Get involved by sharing your participation on social media
We also offer an Emergency Damage Control Tips Brochure that provides homeowners tips on what to do after a water, fire/smoke or vandalism loss to minimize damage. Contact our office to obtain copies of this comprehensive brochure to share with your policyholders.
Below are just a few of those tips you can share:
- After water damage, remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting and removing area rugs from the floor.
- After fire damage, do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from hands can cause additional damage to upholstery, walls, and woodwork.
- After vandalism occurs, make a list of all damage and use a shop vacuum to remove the glass from carpet and upholstery.
Hurricane Dorian is predicted to make landfall as a category 3 storm this Labor Day weekend. Florida has issued a state of emergency as residents begin to make preparations. The storm is expected to bring dangerous winds and a vicious storm surge. Winds between 111 to 129 mph can cause devastating damage, breaking windows and removing roof materials1. As the storm moves up the east coast, heavy rains bring the risk of flash flooding. Hurricanes present a variety of threats including heavy rainfall, storm surges, inland flooding, high winds, tornados and rip currents. Taking the right actions can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster on a home.
