Galen Hayes was honored to speak (in costume, this is NOT his normal look) at the monthly meeting of The Rotary Club of El Sobrante – District 5160 on October 31, 2017.
Galen spoke on a few of his favorite topics with regard to insurance, including flood insurance, earthquake insurance and fire insurance for homeowners.
Flood insurance has been a hot topic this year due to flooding from the recent hurricanes, as well as inclement weather across the country. Recent hurricane losses in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico are in the hundreds of billions of dollars, though much of it is either uninsured or underinsured.
The topic of earthquake insurance touched on the California Earthquake Authority and the lack of insured homes for this coverage. Fire and homeowners insurance were also discussed, including proper insurance valuation and the possibility that many homes are uninsured.It is estimated that in the recent Napa fires nearly 30% of the 9,000 homes burned were not insured.
Galen Hayes is available to speak on a wide variety of insurance topics for both homeowners and business owners. If your organization is looking for an entertaining and knowledgeable speaker, call our office to book Mr. Hayes for your next meeting.
