HIMI: A Managing General Agency

Are You Ready for Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Season 2021

With Hawai‘i businesses focused on recovery from the impacts of the pandemic, this hurricane season it is vital for agents to make sure they are properly covered should a devastating storm event occur.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) asserts that 40% of small businesses close permanently after a natural disaster. Proper coverage and effective claim handling can make the difference between closure, recovery and reopening.
