Hurricane Checklist

We all know Hurricane Season is a very scary thought when it is approaching. That's why we've provided a Hurricane Checklist (see below) to make it a little easier for everyone to be prepared this year. We recommend to print this and distribute to all your family and friends who can be threatened this hurricane season. We here at JVS Insurance never wish for a catastrophe to hit our state, but if it does, we want you to be ready!
