TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – This Wednesday in Pensacola, the Department of Financial Services will co-host a community disaster preparedness workshop alongside the Office of Representative Frank White. As the Atlantic Hurricane Season heats up, it’s more important than ever for Floridians to be as informed and prepared as possible.

Free to all area residents, participants will learn tips to ensure that they have adequate insurance coverage to protect their home and belongings. They will also gain one-on-one access to the Department’s insurance specialists who can answer questions related to coverage in specific disaster-related scenarios, such as food loss due to power outage or downed trees due to a storm. As insurance policies can vary, participants are strongly encouraged to bring a copy of their insurance policy to the event.
