National Hurricane Preparedness Week is here. FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is encouraging property owners to reach out to Bryden and Sullivan to raise awareness about hurricane 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.
The best time to reach out:
- National Hurricane Preparedness Week - May 9-15
- Prior to the start of hurricane season - June 1
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.
Get involved in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and National Weather Service social media campaign.
Bryden and Sullivan and NFIP recommend these hurricane 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.
