Storm season starts officially June 1, and who knows what is ahead? Are you ready?
Get a Plan You and your family need to know what to do in response to a storm. Where will you go? Who should family members call if you are separated? Are there food, water and medical supplies for your time out of the house and when you return? Are all of your most important documents (including bills that are due) in a floodsafe and firesafe place or ready to be carried with you? If you don’t know where to start, FEMA has very simple forms to fill out to get all your important information in one place. This website is written for families and has answers, forms and activities for kids and parents. The attachment is the communication form from this site. http://www.ready.gov/kids
Get Insured! It is also a great time to get insured. The Severe Repetitive Loss elevation program application period is open, but you can’t get funded unless you have a policy in place by June 27, 2015. This can take several weeks to get in place, so call an agent NOW! to get started. Be sure that you get your application in before a storm is brewing somewhere in the Gulf. Go to https://www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart/pages/residential_coverage/rc_overview.jsp for FloodSmart.gov for more information about the insurance available for residences, condos, renters, and businesses.
