Why You Should Invest in Earthquake Coverage
Many of the people who survive large-scale disasters have one vital thing in common – they were prepared. They had a plan. They were able to enact their plan, and although they might have suffered losses along with many others, they were able to get through the initial crisis, work through the rebuilding process, and come through the other side, albeit, perhaps a little sadder and wiser. An important component of that plan needs to be appropriate home insurance.
Living in California, you can’t help but know that you live in earthquake country. What you may not be aware of is that the whole region is busy with earthquake activity pretty much all the time. Some of the quakes may be so small, or far enough away from you that unless someone told you, you’d never know it was happening. These little quakes are unlikely to be life threatening although. It’s the big ones in built up areas that can wreak havoc.
You need a plan to get you through the initial aftermath of a large quake. You need to decide on a meeting place for all your loved ones. You need an emergency kit with water, spare clothes, blankets, non-perishable food, first aid kit, torch, and any vital medications. You should organize alternative accommodation.
You also need to add earthquake insurance to your coverage alongside your home insurance. Don’t be like so many people who get caught off guard with inadequate insurance. Call your California agent today to augment your home insurance with earthquake coverage.
