Prepare for Hazards

Protect Your Property

Everyone faces the risk of natural disaster and no plan to protect property can be complete without insurance coverage against potential damage and loss.  It is important to know exactly what coverage you may need and what coverage is available to protect your property against all of the natural hazards it may be exposed to so that you are not underinsured or not insured at all. Check with your insurance company or local insurance agent.

FEMA strongly encourages property owners and renters to fully explore their insurance needs and obtain adequate coverage before a disaster strikes.
