Atlantic hurricane season is officially here. From June 1st to November 30th the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration predicts that there will be more named storms than historical averages in 2017. If you haven’t already done your hurricane prep work, it's time to get started! AAA Insurance can guide you through the proper steps to protect your home, vehicle, property, and most importantly, your family.
Draft a family evacuation plan. Having a plan is the first step to staying safe. Determine where you will go and how you will get there. Learn hurricane evacuation routes and the locations of local shelters. Don’t forget to include pets as part of the plan.
Create a corresponding communications plan. Decide how you will contact one another during a storm. Have every family member carry contact cards, and program emergency contacts in their cell phones. Come up with a predetermined meeting place and designate an out-of-state contact who can relay messages to family members in case local phone lines are down or overloaded.
Make sure you and your family know what to do in the event of a hurricane and are prepared in the case of a storm in your area. Insurance coverage from AAA can protect you at home or if you have to evacuate, so you can have peace of mind. Call us at 1-866-315-1252, or visit your local AAA Insurance Agent to find out more.
