Operation Storm Ready

North Carolina has seen more than our fair share of hurricanes over the past decade. While these storms fall within a season from June to November, planning for them should start well in advance to make sure your home and business are STORM READY.
 
For this year’s Hurricane Season, IIANC is providing consumers and agents with tools you can use to Put A Plan in Place. While we don’t know what might come to our shores this year, having a plan together well in advance will ensure that your homes and businesses are ready.
 
Throughout July and August, IIANC will share a public service campaign encouraging all North Carolinians to make sure they are STORM READY by Putting a Plan in Place to protect their homes, businesses, and families in the event of a hurricane. IIANC members are encouraged to share this information on social media and with their clients. Check out the Agent Resource Guide in the IIANC Member Resources section below for more details.
 
Also, IIANC members, be on the lookout for our email campaign, providing you with tools you can use to protect your agency and make sure you are ready to assist your clients following a hurricane.
