When it rains, it pours. NFS CEO, Ralph Blust was recently featured in Insurance Business America Magazine. The article featured below focuses on the increasing frequency and severity of floods and the fact that many Americans remain unprotected from the financial impact of a flood.
Floods are becoming more common in the United States. In an age where three-quarters of the country lives paycheck to paycheck, that means most of us are just one bad storm away from disaster. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At NFS, we’ve dedicated ourselves to expanding flood protection for Americans around the country. Here’s our five-pronged approach for making sure more people who need flood insurance actually have it.
The National Weather Service advises that, “The time to prepare for a storm is before the season begins, when you have the time and are not under pressure.” Waiting until the zero hour to plan can result is costly mistakes.
The saying “Times like this, even though tragic and devastating, bond us together as neighbors” by Jerry Reed has never been truer as evidenced by the solidarity many communities have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Part of preparing for a hurricane includes strengthening your home. There are a number of ways to do this that can help to minimize damage sustained during a storm.
One very important but often overlooked but part of preparing for a storm is insurance. Be sure to reach out to offer your policyholders an insurance checkup.
Now that you should be aware of your flood risk and have created an evacuation plan, it’s time to start assembling disaster supplies. Start by making a list of various supplies you’ll need to both get through the storm and its aftermath.
The flood insurance market has historically lagged behind other lines of business when it comes to customer simplicity, agent experience, and innovation. There has been limited progress in terms of operations and workflows within companies, the way in which agents are educated, and how the product is sold. However, one flood solutions provider that boasts a 35-year history and deep expertise in this marketplace is driving innovation and modernization into the flood insurance industry.
