WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) June 01, 2017
With the 2017 hurricane season beginning today, the American Insurance Association (AIA) is urging people to take precautions now to protect their home and other valuables.
“Last year, we had the most active hurricane season since 2012,” said Jim Whittle, AIA’s Associate General Counsel and Chief Claims Counsel. “We urge people in hurricane-prone areas to prepare for tomorrow’s storm, today.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting 11 to 17 named storms, of which 5 to 9 could become hurricanes between June 1 and November 30. To help policyholders get ready for hurricane season, AIA has issued “4 Tips to Protect Your Property.”
This infographic provides homeowners with simple ways they can protect their homes and other valuables in the event of a storm. These include:
1. Preparing a disaster plan.
2. Maintaining an up-to-date home/business inventory.
3. Considering purchasing flood insurance.
4. Reviewing home, vehicle and/or business insurance coverage to make sure they are right for the season.
