Association warns of hurricane season

Posted 5/21/13

CHICAGO – With the approach of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season that begins June 1, the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America recommends that business owners, homeowners and renters prepare for the potentially devastating effects of a major storm, according to a press release.

“To prevent loss of life and minimize property damage, it is vital that coastal residents create a family disaster plan, maintain an emergency supply kit and stay informed about approaching storms,” said Christopher Hackett, director of personal lines policy for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America.

"In addition, the storm-proofing of structures is one of the most effective ways to promote public safety and reduce the costs of homeowners insurance," Hackett said.

Taking proactive steps to strengthen structures protects policyholders' families and assets and strengthens the property insurance market, on both the state and federal levels, by reducing risk exposure, according to the release.

One important preparation is to store important documents in a safe and dry place. The name, address and claims-reporting telephone number of the insurance company and agent should be kept in a safe and easily-accessible place.
