Now is the time to prep for hurricane season by encouraging your clients to purchase a flood insurance policy. Help the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its National Flood Insurance Program by spreading the word about the vital protection and peace of mind flood insurance offers your clients in the event of flood damage.
FEMA and its NFIP set up these four easy steps to help your clients prepare for hurricane season:
- Encourage members of your community to reach out to their local agent to purchase a flood insurance policy before peak hurricane season
- Share NFIP materials including social media resources, brochures, posters, flyers, and videos on your website, via e-mail, and through your network’s newsletter or listserv
- Use our sample media content to post on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook
- Embed the NFIP Cost of Flooding Tool and other engaging materials such as Survivor Stories to your website
