Protect Your Family During Severe Weather

Did you know that March is Severe Weather Preparation Month?

While it may still feel like winter outside, it won’t be long until spring arrives. And with it comes spring storms! Is your family prepared?

Spring weather will be here before we know it! And now is the time to think about protecting your home and family.

First things first, make sure you have designated a safe place to go to if the weather gets severe. It could be a basement, closet, or room with no windows or outside walls. Make sure this space is cleared out enough that you could easily get your family (and pets) inside if needed. (You don’t want to be frantically clearing out the closet if there is a tornado!)

Next, put together a small emergency kit. What would you need if the power was out? Consider putting in flashlights, extra batteries, canned food, a weather radio and plenty of water. (Don’t forget supplies for your pets too!)

Keep emergency phone numbers in your cell phone contacts, including the phone number for our office (508-347-9343) in case you need to make a claim. You could even save a note in your phone with your policy numbers too.

If you do suffer damage, give us a call to report a claim once the danger has passed. We’ll do everything we can to make the claim process simple and quick!

While we can’t prevent bad weather, it’s always great to be as prepared as possible. Take care of your family first and know that we’ll be there to protect your belongings.
