When businesses and homeowners are desperate for help to repair and rebuild after a disaster such as a hurricane, tornado or wildfire, they seek assistance from anyone who will offer help. Unfortunately, there are scammers who prey on those emotions and take advantage of good people in their darkest hour.
Protecting yourself and your family is your first priority in the aftermath of a catastrophic event. When your auto, home, business or personal property is damaged or destroyed by a tornado, hail, flood or other destructive event, focus on people first.
Disasters can happen anytime…anywhere…to anyone: Be prepared. The past decade brought an ever-increasing number of natural disasters and other catastrophic events, affecting people and property. Make sure you are ready for the next one by having an emergency plan in place.

But how effective will these plans be in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic?

Kyle Mathews and Justin Anderson, two of our claims technology specialists, participated in a training exercise so they can fly the drone on their own in the future. The vendor walked them through all the steps to ensure a safe flight.
