FREE Flood Insurance Workshop for Insurance Agents, Realtors, and Lenders

Whether caused by hurricanes, tropical or winter storms, or by some other natural or man-made event, flooding represents a significant exposure to property and life in the US particularly in our coastal states. In 2018, Hawaii had three Presidentially declared disasters related to flooding.

Insurance agents play an important role in helping homeowners, business owners, and renters understand and assess their risk and ensuring they have the right type and amount of insurance to help protect their property.
