Record-Setting Hurricane Season Highlights the Importance of Being Ready
PCI Says Use the Off-Season to Prepare

The insurance industry worked closely with millions of policyholders during the record-setting hurricane season of 2017 to help them prepare, recover and rebuild.

Although hurricane season does not begin until June 1, insurers encourage homeowners to use this quiet time to get prepared by taking the necessary steps to be physically and financially ready when a storm hits.

This is the perfect time for consumers to talk with their insurance agent or company and complete a comprehensive review of their insurance policies. It is important that policyholders understand their coverage and consider purchasing optional coverages such as flood insurance, which is not included in standard homeowners policies.

PCI has a wide range of resources available to help homeowners and business prepare for hurricane season and we remind everyone to educate themselves about their insurance protection and how it works. Follow us on Twitter @PCIAA and use #HurricanePrep to keep the conversation going.
