Have a happy and safe new year

News >>

CPR Insurance Services has had a fantastic 2014, thanks to all our clients and supporters. We thrive on the success of our clients and our commisserations go to those businesses that did not survive what has been a tough year for many.

This year CPR Insurance handled a record amount of claims with all but one being successfully resolved or on its way to being settled. The one we have not had settled yet, we keep fighting for our client and always will when it is a legitimate claim. 

The majority of our claims this year were storm related. They involved water damage caused by entering buildings, hail damage and lightening damage. Crash Repairers appera to be booked up until May and there is no glass for the glaziers at the moment. Widespread catastrophes are difficult, but we appreciate your patience. The two storms on the 19th November and 27th November 2014 caused more than one billion dollars of damage.

More storms are expected this summer, so plan your protection strategy. See our article here or follow the attached tips here.

In the meantime, have a safe Christmas and a successful new year from everyone at CPR Insurance Services.

There are a number of simple things you can do to make sure your home and family can withstand severe weather. 

• Sign up to Council’s Early Warning Alert Service to receive a notification if your suburb may be affected by storms.
• If a storm is approaching secure loose items in the yard, shelter, secure pets, and place vehicles under cover if possible.
• Take the opportunity, if the weather is clear, to trim tree branches near your house, clean gutters and downpipes of leaf litter and check your roof and skylights are in good condition.
• Prepare an emergency kit including a torch, portable radio, spare batteries, first aid kit, emergency contact numbers and important documents such as insurance papers.
• Find out your flood risk on the interactive Flood Awareness Map
• Check the structural integrity of timber decks, balconies, balustrades, stairs and handrails - more information can be found at Check Your Deck 

BCC encourages all residents in our sub-tropical city to take the necessary steps to prepare for severe weather, and I talk to our Assets Services teams every day about Council preparations as well.
