What Can I Do in Advance?
Before Hurricane Season is the best time to effectively prepare for a potential natural disaster. You can start by thinking ahead, organizing and doing some simple tasks, listed below.
- Review your insurance policy and ensure you have sufficient coverage. Or, visit any of our three locations for assistance from our insurance agents.

Families - find out where your nearest hurricane shelter is located and have an evacuation plan in the event that your home is severely affected. Businesses - write a disaster preparedness plan that outlines a continuity plan to keep your business running in the event of a disaster.
