Are You Prepared in Case of an Earthquake?
September is National Preparedness Month, serving as an important reminder that disasters can happen at any time. At Brown and Brown Northwest Insurance, we want to ensure you are properly protected – no one can predict when disasters will strike and it’s important to be prepared.
In regard to earthquakes, there are several important things to consider:
• Earthquake Preparedness Kit – Because no one can predict when an earthquake will occur, it’s important to store earthquake preparedness kits in your most frequented locations, including your home, office and/or vehicle, to ensure you have the proper supplies when and where you need them. Contact your BBNW insurance agent for an earthquake kit discount code!
• Earthquake Gas Shut-Off Valve – This valve closes the gas line going into the outside of your home in the event of an earthquake to reduce the potential risk of explosion or fire after a major earthquake. Contact your BBNW insurance agent for a shut-off valve installation discount code!
• Earthquake Insurance Coverage – earthquake is an excluded peril on most homeowners’ insurance policies, so why not take this month to review and understand your coverages. Contact us if you would to learn more about earthquake coverage.
As always, thank you!
From your team at Brown & Brown Northwest Insurance
