HALIFAX, NS, Sept. 21, 2022 /CNW/ – In anticipation of Hurricane Fiona, Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) is sharing the following tips and advice to help keep you, your family and property safe.
“A hurricane can cause extensive damage regardless of its category. Being prepared for any severe weather event is important for your personal and financial security,” said Amanda Dean, Vice-President, Atlantic, IBC. “We want to ensure that residents in Atlantic Canada are ready for strong wind or heavy rains that Hurricane Fiona may bring to the region. Even a significantly weakened hurricane can carry winds strong enough to cause widespread destruction.”
When we don’t have an imminent storm, talk to your insurance representative to make sure you have appropriate coverage. Now is a good time to remind yourself of the policy that you have in place.
Anyone with questions about their individual policy should contact their insurance representative.
