by People's Trust Insurance | May 28, 2015

“What Hurricane Are You?” Quiz Featured in Hurricane Guide for 2015

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (28-May-2015) – Consumers can find out if they are spontaneous and unpredictable like Hurricane Charley or confident and thorough like Hurricane Irene in the “What Hurricane Are You?” quiz. The light-hearted quiz is one of a variety of tools People’s Trust Insurance is using to encourage Florida homeowners to be better prepared for hurricane season.

What Hurricane are you?

Consumers can find out if they are spontaneous and unpredictable like Hurricane Charley or confident and thorough like Hurricane Irene in the "What Hurricane Are You?" online quiz. The light-hearted quizlet is one of a variety of tools People’s Trust Insurance is using to encourage Florida homeowners to be better prepared for the 2015 hurricane season.

“The quiz is a fun, shareable way to help attract attention to the start of hurricane season and encourage Floridians to get ready,” said Adam Hasner, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for People’s Trust insurance. “We want Florida homeowners to know the simple steps they can take now to protect their homes and families.”

That’s why People’s Trust created a comprehensive guide to hurricane safety and preparedness for the 2015 hurricane season.

The 2015 Florida Hurricane Guide arms residents of the Sunshine State with expert advice on storm preparation, what to do when a storm hits, and how to recover in the aftermath of a storm. The information packet provides emergency contacts; information regarding warnings; safety tips for children, seniors, pets and food; and checklists for evacuations, home inventory worksheets, emergency kits and general protective measures.

2015 Hurricane Guide Cover

The move is part of the larger mission for People’s Trust Insurance, the innovative home insurance provider known for its upfront investment in preparedness and focus on rapid response. In addition to a strong balance sheet and solid reinsurance plan featuring highly rated reinsurance partners, the People’s Trust approach includes exclusive access to its affiliated general contractor, the Rapid Response Team. The Rapid Response Team operates a fleet of more than 150 trucks and vehicles and 10 Response Centers around the state stocked with millions of dollars’ in valuable supplies typically needed in the wake of a widespread disaster, such as tarps, generators, plywood, roofing supplies, water mitigation equipment, and much more.

Through their upfront investment in preparedness, People’s Trust is able to avoid price hikes brought on by demand surge, reduce further damage through emergency response and pass the savings along to policyholders in the form of lower rates.

The quiz can be accessed here and the 2015 Hurricane Guide is available on the People’s Trust website. Hurricane season begins June 1 and runs through November 30.
