Disaster Preparedness: There's an App for That
September is National Preparedness Month.
Now you can be prepared to protect your property from damage the next time a disaster strikes with a new iPhone® app from the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) and the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).
The Your Plan app was developed by the I.I.I. and uses a set of resources and checklists from the IBHS to help you minimize property damage from severe weather and other disasters. Preparing yourself and your property against damage can minimize losses and make your homeowners insurance company very happy.
Start with preloaded checklists built into the Your Plan app to learn how to prepare for disasters and minimize property damage. Monitor events with local emergency information right from the app. Set due dates, add notes, track your progress—even create and share custom checklists with friends and family.
The app is free to download from the Apple® App Store and is an easy way to help make sure you're prepared in the event of a disaster.
