Right now could you list everything in your home and it's value? Now consider the same question under the stress of a devastating loss due to a burglary, fire, flood, or other natural disaster. Even if you do manage to recall most of your belongings, how confident are you that your current insurance policy will cover your loss? Unfortunately, these are the first questions you will be forced to answer when filing a claim, under such unfavorable circumstances. An accurate home inventory, or complete list of all of your belongings in your home and their value, can help determine if you have the right insurance protection, and in the event of a loss, it can make filing a claim easier.

If a fire starts in your home, you may have only minutes or seconds to escape. Would you be able to react in time? Would your children or others in your home know what to do?

Although not all home fires can be prevented, being prepared is the best way to ensure the safety of your family.

Power outages are inconvenient any time of the year but when winter weather is the cause, wide-spread, long-term outages can be devastating, dangerous and even deadly. The peace of mind that comes from being prepared for a winter storm ahead of time cannot be measured.
