BOCA RATON, Fla. – People’s Trust Insurance will be supporting and promoting Flood Safety Awareness in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Get Ready Campaign.
Together, we encourage all Florida homeowners to know their risk and take action to protect themselves.
You can get prepared by purchasing Flood Insurance for your Florida home now, as there is a 30-day wait period on most Flood Insurance policies. “Flood insurance can be the difference between recovering and being financially devastated. Just one inch of water in a home can cost more than $25,000 in damage—why risk it?” states Floodsmart.gov
It’s been reported that 85% of Houston homeowner’s affected by Hurricane Harvey did not have Flood Insurance and many were considered to live in low-risk flood zones. It’s important to note that all homes in Florida are at risk for flooding.
“In addition to purchasing Flood Insurance,” Chief Executive Officer and President, George Schaeffer, of People’s Trust Insurance, advised that it’s critical to “build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. You can access a lot of resources to help you and your family get prepared by visiting Ready.Gov https://www.ready.gov/make-a-plan and downloading their Flood preparedness toolkit.”
Everyone should be aware of flood hazards no matter where you live or work. More information on how Florida homeowners can prepare for Floods can be found at Ready.gov.
