Safeguarding What’s Most Important to You

How We Help, Loss Prevention

You’re a smart home owner or business person. You do everything you can to make sure you are properly protected. That’s why you have insurance: to protect you in case of a loss.

But how do you minimize the chance of a loss in the first place? The answer – by reviewing your home or business on a regular basis to see if anything has changed that could become a risk.

Did you know? 

There are some things in your dwelling or building that you should check regularly.  If you make changes, you should contact your Broker to let them know.

  • Electrical systems—damaged, deteriorated or temporary wiring, improper connections, over fusing
  • Sump pumps, plumbing systems
  • Fuel tanks (oil, gas, diesel, propane)
  • Pools, stairways and handrails,
  • Smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers
  • Solid fuel heating systems (in other words, wood, coal, wood pellets, wood chips and  grain)
