NFIP flood insurance is affordable insurance available to those communities that actively participate in a floodplain management system. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), encourages home and business owners to purchase flood and property insurance so that the impact of national disasters will not be negatively felt economically and socially.
Purchasing and owning flood insurance is not the only way you can prepare for a disaster; Here are a few things that you can do when you hear a storm is approaching.
Stay informed: Actively listen to the news and follow emergency instructions.
Take pictures: By taking photos, you are documenting all of your contents that could be lost during a flood.
Reduce flooding: Clear any drains, gutters, and downspouts. Also, always check to make sure your sump pump is working and provide a battery back up.
NFIP flood insurance also recommends that you protect important documents such as birth certificates, insurance documents, passports, and any other essential forms. You should also make an evacuation plan, and this includes what to do with your pets, as some shelters will not take them. Remember, the best thing you can do is always be prepared as flooding can happen at any time.For more information about NFIP flood insurance or on our services, visit our website or give us a call at 1-540-809-1415.
