Hurricane Preparedness

IT'S HURRICANE SEASON AND TIME TO PREPARE!!!
 
According to NOAA your disaster prevention plan should include a Family Disaster Plan, a Survival Kit, an Alternative Place To Go, Securing Your Home, An Evacuation Plan, and a Plan For Your Pets.
 
The Department of Financial Servcies also offers brochures on where to help after a hurricane. If you plan on using a generator be sure to read about generator safety to keep your family safe.
 
Please take the time to review this information to keep your family and home safe in case of a hurricane. Now is a good time to check that all your policies (Life, Home, & Auto) are current. Remeber to keep all your important documents ( birth certificates, social security cards, insurance policies, credit card and mortgage info, legal papers) in a weather proof container and take it with you if you have to evacuate.
 
You can get up to date information on approaching storms at NOAA, The Weather Channel, or your local tv channel's website.
 
We at Professional Insurance Services, Inc. hope that it is a quiet season for all and that everyone stays safe.
