      Flood

      Many Florida homeowners do not understand the importance of flood insurance and often underestimate flood risks. Additionally, many are not aware that a homeowner’s policy does not typically cover flood. The FAIR Foundation recommends that ALL Florida homeowners should have flood insuranceThe National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides coverage to many Floridians.  However, there are increasingly affordable options available in addition to purchasing coverage from the NFIP.

      Contact your insurance agent for information about coverage options or to obtain a quote.
