Are You Prepared?

There is no question Texas has been hit hard by hurricane Harvey and our thoughts are with all those who have suffered a loss.  Now is the time to think about how you will respond to the next big storm or disaster. Remember, some disasters are not covered under a standard homeowners insurance policy. Part of your planning needs to be a review of your personal insurance policy.

Flood Insurance

Flood damage is excluded under all homeowner’s policies. We can obtain coverage for you through the National Flood Insurance Program

Disaster Preparation Tips

  • Create a personal backpack for each family member
  • Develop an evacuation route in advance
  • Have a pre-determined meeting place if separated from family
  • Think about what your pet’s needs may be
  • Would you need to build a shelter? Having plastic sheeting might help

A basic emergency kit should include the following:

  • Three-day supply of food and water
  • Medications
  • Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  • Flashlight
  • Whistle
  • Battery
  • Basic tools
  • Solar power source for smart phone
  • Dust masks for every family member
  • First aid kit
