Preparing for Hurricane Season 2015

Posted on July 28, 2015 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Hurricane season for the Atlantic usually begins in early June and continues on through November 30th. There are several things we can do to prepare ourselves here in Virginia. Upon doing research for this blog, there were a few resources for hurricane preparedness. There is now an app you can dowload onto your phone called the READY VIRGINIA MOBILE APP that provides emergency planning and guidance in the event of a catastrophe. Additionally, there is a Preparedness Handbook available for downloading that can be very informational in emergency planning and what to do in the event of a hurricane:   

In the past years here in Virginia, we have experienced very dangerous storms. One of the most costly and scary hurricanes we experienced here was Hurricane Isabel in September 2003. Left in the wake of its disaster, many were left without power for days and weeks. We need to prepare ourselves for such events occuring in our area again. Purchasing small generators and reading up on how to prepare is something we can all be doing now to protect our future.

As always, we as your insurance agents are here for you in such disasters. We will be releasing information on how to contact us should our office be closed down due to the weather. 

Stay safe, everyone. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
