Important to be prepared for hurricanes

Posted On Fri, June 1, 2012

If a homeowner lives in an area of the country where hurricanes are not unheard of, it is smart to take some precautions to make sure that they are prepared for a large storm, according to Amica Insurance.

It is important that homeowners have a plan for a storm. This includes a first aid kit, water, a flashlight and food, the report explained. In addition, evacuation plans are important, as well as an inventory of items in the home in case of damage. In that case, a person would need to file a claim.

"Now's the time to get emergency kits and evacuation plans in order, and to perform the repairs and maintenance needed to protect your home," said Ted Murphy, superintendent of claims for Amica Insurance. "The more you can do now, the better prepared you’ll be when the storms come."

Not only should a person have the proper supplies and precautions, the report added that a person should examine their home insurance plan to make sure it has what they need and they are covered in case of storm damage. If not, it could be a good idea to look for other home insurance quotes.
