Q: Tornadoes are fairly common in my part of the country, and I’ve seen the destruction they can cause. Now that I have a family, I’m giving some real thought to planning and prepping. Where do I start?
Matt Mormile, a Farmers Insurance® agent in Mentor, Ohio, discusses how home insurance can help guide your preparation efforts.
A: I sit down with customers every year to review their policies and insurance options. Helping prepare for disasters is always part of this discussion. When a tornado strikes, it is important to have enough coverage to rebuild your home, replace your belongings and pay temporary living expenses. But that’s not the only way Farmers can help customers prepare.
Farmers gives you practical information on planning for weather emergencies. You can get these educational materials from your agent and at Farmers.com. These materials help explain how you can create an overall action plan for protecting your home and family. Farmers experienced professionals have developed easy-to-follow safety guides for all kinds of weather events, including tornadoes. I’m active on social media and use it to share this information with customers on a regular basis.
If there’s a major tornado disaster where you live, a Farmers Mobile Claim Center will be on the scene to provide claims service. Our response team may also be able to provide families with food, emergency supplies and help locating family members.
