**Consumer Alert**
CFO Jimmy Patronis to Florida Residents: Prepare Now as Tropical Storm Dorian Intensifies

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— As officials continue to track the path of Tropical Storm Dorian in the Caribbean, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis reminds residents to prepare now.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “We are at the peak of the 2019 Hurricane Season and Floridians should pay attention to the path of Tropical Storm Dorian over the next few days. Now is the time to follow easy insurance preparation steps to make sure you can file claims quickly if disaster strikes."
 
Office of Insurance Regulation Commissioner David Altmaier said, "With the current predicted track of Tropical Storm Dorian showing a potential impact to Florida, my office expects insurers to be accessible and responsive to policyholders before and after the storm. Floridians should prepare now so that they are ready should this storm make landfall."
 
3 Disaster Preparedness Tips
 
1. Gather important insurance and financial documents. Take copies of your legal, financial and medical documents with you, including bank statements, insurance policies, mortgage information, wills, birth certificates, passports and medical prescriptions. Keep these copies in a plastic bag for safe keeping.
 
2. Conduct a home inventory. Pull together an itemized list of your belongings, including costs, purchase dates and serial numbers. Attach receipts, especially for “big ticket” items. Snap photos of valuables in your home. Dated photographs or taking a video of your possessions on your phone can help during the claims process after a storm. Es probable que su aseguradora le exija prueba del costo de cualquier objeto por el que usted realice una reclamación.
 
3. Know your insurance contacts. Escriba los nombres de su agente y agencia, de su compañía de seguros, su número de póliza y los números de teléfono donde informar las reclamaciones. Recuerde que es probable que el nombre de su compañía de seguro sea diferente al de su agente, agencia o asegurador. Save CFO Patronis' Insurance Helpline number in your phone (1-877-MY-FL-CFO).
