If Hurricane Sandy taught us anything, it is that we are each on our own.
Whether it is a natural disaster or a man-made mess, when the crisis’s hits, you are on your own. This may seem heartless, but it is reality.
The New York area was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and people are struggling to put their lives back in order. For this disaster there was plenty of warning. People had time to plan for what to do before, during and after. Yet we see people in distress because they failed to prepare.
Yes we have police, firefighters and government agencies to assist in a disaster, but the bottom line is, no one is going to care more about your safety and well fare as much as you. You need to be ready to do so. If the disaster is big enough then you may be second or third in line for the first responders. If you are relying on strangers to help you through a disaster, think again.
Before disaster befalls you, your loved ones or your practice, put together a comprehensive disaster preparedness plan. With your plan in place you will have a road map of the steps necessary to provide for your family and your business. While others scramble to figure out what to do, you will be moving forward.
We have recently added Disaster Preparedness Planning and Risk Management Consulting to our services. We offer these services at no additional charge to our insurance customers, and we offer the same services on a consulting basis for those clients who would prefer to keep their insurance with other brokers.
We invite business principals to request a free initial phone consultation to determine if our services are a good fit for your business’ bottom line.
If you don’t currently have a good relationship with your insurance agent, or if you are ready for an insurance re-evaluation, call Tom Ostdiek at Ostdiek Group, Inc. 630-834-0125.
