With hurricane season fast approaching on June 1st, People’s Trust Insurance, a Florida-based home insurance company, is proud to promote the importance of hurricane preparedness in Florida.

To help all Floridian’s get prepared for hurricane season, People’s Trust has launched a Hurricane Preparedness Guide to be distributed during the company and state-wide Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 6 – 12, 2019. The guide provides a step-by-step plan on how to get yourself, home, children, seniors, and pets ready for storm season. Useful tips and strategies for before, during, and after a storm are also included.

“The last few years we’ve experienced active hurricane seasons throughout Florida. We want to make sure our policyholders and all Floridians are ready as the 2019 storm season approaches. That’s why we’ve released our comprehensive 2019 Hurricane Preparedness Guide to help all Florida homeowners with their preparations,” said George Schaeffer, Chief Executive Officer and President of People’s Trust Insurance.

"Preparedness is ingrained in all that we do and it’s what sets us apart from other home insurance companies," said Schaeffer.  He added, "Our affiliation with Rapid Response Team means our policyholders are first in line after a storm for emergency mitigation and repairs.
