Florida Homeowners Insurance Claim Timeline

Basic Disaster Preparedness

Because Florida can experience severe storms at any time of year, it is best to be prepared for storms and other natural disasters by having a disaster plan.

  • Have a family safety plan that includes a family communication plan, an evacuation plan, and a plan for sheltering in place.
  • Complete a home inventory and update the inventory periodically. Create a list of items in each room of your home. Make a video of each room or take pictures of your property in case you need to file a Florida homeowners insurance claim.
  • Create an emergency kit for your home. FEMA provides a list of basic disaster supplies. Don’t forget to create an emergency kit for your vehicle.
  • Create an emergency file that contains important records that you would need in the event of a disaster, such as insurance policies, property records, appraisals, personal identification records, home inventory, list of current medications for each family member, etc.
