With November coming to an end, so is the 2011 Hurricane Season. During this particular season, seven hurricanes formed with three considered major (Category 3 or higher). Luckily, in Florida, residents did not see a lot of hurricane activity or damage.

However, it’s never too early to look ahead at the 2012 Hurricane Season. Now is the perfect time to reevaluate your hurricane safety plans and make sure the family is prepared for June, when hurricane season begins.

Here are some quick tips on what to do during this offseason:

Make sure you have hurricane shutters. Now is the perfect time to get your home fitted for shutters.

Make sure everyone in the family knows the emergency plan should a hurricane threaten your home.

While you don’t need to have a stockpile of food ready for 2012, you should have a checklist of medical information and other important documents prepared.

Now is also a great time to assess your homeowners’ insurance policy and clarify with an agent if you have any questions or want to make any changes. Visit the Coverages section of our website at  to learn what coverage is right for you.

Even though it’s rare, sometimes storms can form outside of the designated dates. So make sure you stay up to date with local weather.
