March 2012 - Brownstone Works for You
Disaster can strike in the blink of an eye. The difference between a disaster ruining your life and just being a major inconvenience is preparation. Preparation includes having an emergency plan in place, having emergency supplies ready, an alternate place to stay (such as a family member's or friend's home), and the proper insurance coverage to get you back on your feet. In this issue we'll feature the case of a Back Bay condo building that suffered severe damage after an electrical fire, and how the tenants and insurance coverage responded. Brownstone Insurance is always there when you need us. Whether it's a water leak, or a power surge, the team at Brownstone will know what to do. View our March 2012 newsletter.
