Hi, I’m Lindsey and you can find me as the new face in our Dennis office as the new Receptionist. I’ve been in the insurance industry for a little over 5 years and happy to be with the Bryden & Sullivan family. I am originally from the garden state but I have found my home and heart out here on the Cape. In my spare time I love to create art, enjoy nature, and study entomology & foreign languages. I’d like to think I have a green thumb too as I have a passion for tending to orchids.
Hope to see you soon!
Seasonal (and even un-seasonal) storms are always a possibility, as well we know on the Cape and along the coast. FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is encouraging property owners to reach out to Bryden and Sullivan to raise awareness about hurricane and windstorm risk on Cape Cod.
It’s also time to do an insurance checkup to determine if you are renewing an existing plan, updating to a new one, or signing up as a new client. Bryden and Sullivan reminds you that it takes 30 days for a Flood Insurance policy to kick in.
Whether it’s a major flood or just an inch of water, flood insurance helps cover the cost of flood damage. Just one inch of water in an average-sized home can cost up to $25,000 in damage. Most homeowners and renters policies typically do not cover flood damage.
Bryden and Sullivan and NFIP recommend these storm preparedness tips:
- Know the risk. Know what the upcoming hurricane season may bring and how your home(s) may be impacted.
- Conduct an insurance checkup. Review your current flood insurance coverage to ensure there is no lapse. If you don’t have flood insurance, it is crucial to secure coverage now, since policies typically take 30 days to go into effect.
- Store important information. Locate and store insurance policy information and other important papers in a watertight container, a safe deposit box, or another secure location outside the home.
- Reduce potential damage. Move valuables to higher levels, clear gutters and drains of debris and install check valves to keep pipes from back flowing.
Bryden and Sullivan looks forward to partnering with you to financially protect your home from future flood damage.

If you’re a homeowner, you may be surprised to learn that the bulk of water damage to a home isn’t due to natural disasters or flooding. It’s actually due to unchecked plumbing issues that lurk on the property — things like slow leaks, corroded pipes, and degraded valves and supply lines. Even your water make-up can be a culprit.
Fortunately, many of these issues are preventable with some basic, proactive home maintenance.
