Commissioner Pieciak Reminds Residents to Prepare for Tropical Storm Isaias
As Tropical Storm Isaias approaches Vermont, Commissioner Pieciak of the Department of Financial Regulation encourages Vermonters to locate important documents, including homeowners and auto insurance policies and company contact information.
If your property is damaged by Tropical Storm Isaias, contact your insurer before you clean up or make repairs, and photograph all damage. After speaking with your insurer and photographing damage, take action to prevent further damage by covering broken windows, damaged walls, or leaking roofs, but do not make permanent repairs. Your insurance company should inspect the property and estimate the cost of permanent repairs. Save all receipts and documentation, including those related to temporary repairs.
Vermonters are encouraged to contact the Department’s consumer services team if they have any questions or issues call 800-964-1784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
