In light of the two recent fires in our neighborhood in about as many months, our treasurer, Michael Fine, had a great idea of asking our local fire department to attend the civic association meeting to discuss fire safety. Michael also suggested that we find someone to provide advice regarding what kind insurance coverage homeowners and renters should have to protect themselves and their belongings in the event of a fire. While we expect to have someone from the fire department in attendance, we have not had any luck securing an insurance expert. Please email me (terijanine @ gmail.com) if you (or someone you know) is qualified and available to provide this type of guidance at our meeting this Monday. We are not looking for a sales pitch, but rather a few tips on things we should look for in our policies to make sure we have the appropriate coverage. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. We hope to see you at the meeting.
