Your home is the place that you should feel the safest, but emergencies can strike any time and usually without warning. Safeguard your precious investment so that in case the unthinkable happens, you aren’t left with any nasty surprises.
Update Your Insurance Policy
It’s the law that you need to have homeowners insurance at the time you purchase a new house, but as time goes on and you make upgrades and changes to the home, so you should be updating your insurer. The guaranteed replacement cost likely will change along with the square footage, so make sure that your insurance company is aware of any changes you make to the home.

Have a Plan
A clear understanding and a plan regarding what to do in an emergency are essential to keeping your loved ones and your home safe. Have a family meeting and explain what everybody needs to do during a crisis, being clear and calm with any nervous little ones. Have an open forum in case there are questions.
- Don’t forget about things that you and/or your partner need to do for the home like cut the power and water. Let everyone have a role in these scenarios.
Being caught unaware during an emergency is a horrible thing. Prepare your home and family so that if something were to happen, you are all ready for it.
