Senator Greg Evers said that it is important for panhandle residents to remain vigilant, particularly during hurricane season which runs through November 30th. “When individuals and communities are better educated about the tools that are available to them they have a better chance of making a full financial recovery after a loss. Our community is no stranger to catastrophic losses, but it’s been quite some time since we’ve suffered a major hurricane. It’s not a matter of if – it’s a matter of when. It’s imperative that everyone be prepared and this event is a great way to start.”
The experts will make their presentations and be on hand to answer any questions. Everyone will receive a free insurance policy review (bring your insurance policy) and valuable take home materials. We hope to see you there.
