This Hurricane Season, Take the Time to Be Prepared for Any Disaster

June 25, 2012

Baseball and hurricane preparedness have a lot in common – you have to cover all the bases to be successful. As Floridians, we all need to be team players and insure, secure, recover.

With hurricane preparedness, making it to first base is ensuring you have adequate coverage for your property.  Tagging second base means securing important documents, and rounding third base is having the ability to recover after a storm. Taking these steps will help you protect your home base this hurricane season.

Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, Jeff Atwater, encourages all Floridians to protect their home base by preparing financially for a disaster. The Department of Financial Services and the Federal Alliance for Safe Home (FLASH) is hosting a series of disaster preparedness webinars to ensure residents are prepared. Topics will include how to:

  • Ensure adequate coverage
  • Safeguard important documents
  • Prepare an itemized inventory
  • Create and execute an evacuation plan
  • Properly file a claim
  • Strengthen your home

Webinar dates and times are:

  Wednesday, June 27th at 10:00 a.m.
  Tuesday, July 10th at 12:00 p.m.
  Wednesday, July 18th at 2:00 p.m.
