Following a Disaster

Should you become separated from family members, use your communication plan. Letting family and friends know you are safe and well can bring them peace of mind — you can register yourself or search for loved ones at the Red Cross’s

If you are evacuated, return home only when officials say it is safe. If you cannot return home and have immediate housing needs, text SHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (example: shelter 12345).

Please stay alert and away from dangers like:

  • Damaged roads or bridges
  • Broken or damaged power lines and gas lines
  • Broken glass, splintered wood and other sharp, dangerous objects
  • Gas fumes (open windows for ventilation, and wait to use lighters or matches)
  • Flood residue contaminated with sewage or chemicals

Remember to cooperate with authorities. We can all do our part to help in an emergency by staying updated and complying when officials in the area recommend keeping phone lines clear, staying off emergency roads or taking other safety precautions.


Inspect and protect your property

Once the catastrophe has passed and you’ve checked in with friends and family, the next step is to call your insurance agent to report any property damage.

If it is safe to do so, protect your property from further damage by making small emergency repairs to your home before an insurance adjuster sees it. This could include boarding up windows, putting a tarp on the roof and salvaging  undamaged items.

If possible, keep damaged items or portions of these items until the claim adjuster has visited your home. Consider photographing or videotaping the damage to provide further documentation to support your claim.

FEMA may also provide assistance after some disasters — call 800-621-3362 or go to for more information.

Talk with your Farmers® agent. They can help you understand your insurance options so you can select the insurance you want and answer your insurance questions.
