TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Integrity Insurance Company, one of Florida’s leading insurance companies, continues to closely monitor the path of Hurricane Dorian, and will deploy its disaster response team as needed to help customers quickly recover from the storm. The Company encourages those in the path of the storm to prepare and consider the following tips:
- Remain Informed: Listen to the radio or TV for the latest on the storm’s path and wind speed, as well as evacuation information, and heed all public warnings.
- Secure Your Home: Close windows, blinds, shutters, and doors, including interior doors, and secure your outdoor furniture and debris
- Prepare Your Food: Turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep its doors closed to keep it cold as long as possible.
- Stay Connected: If your landline and power go out, use your smart device to access useful sources of information like your local news channels, the National Hurricane Center, American Red Cross, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Don’t forget to charge your devices ahead of time.
- Be Ready to Evacuate: Identify evacuation centers in advance, especially if you need to stay in a pet-friendly shelter or hotel.
- Wait Until It’s Safe Before Returning Home: If you must evacuate, don’t go back to the area until it has been declared safe by local or state officials.
