Prepare For Hurricane Season

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Hurricane Season begins Monday and Floridians know from recent hurricane activity that you have to plan for the worst while hoping for the best. Proper planning before the hurricane season can save heartache and pain after a storm strikes.

Stock your home with emergency supplies including a 3-5 day supply of water and non-perishable food. Make sure you have an extra supply of prescription medications, baby supplies, or other items necessary to meet your family’s medical needs. Battery operated flashlights, lamps, and radios will be needed when the storm shuts down power in the area, which often can last for days. Have a first aid kit on hand.

For more information on hurricane preparedness and to develop your own family plan for the season, visit the websites of the National Hurrican Center, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management.

After the storm, if your insurance company denies you coverage for damage to your home, car or personal property, call CGWC for a free consultation with our experienced insurance coverage attorneys about your legal rights.
