You might have missed it but Saturday, April 27, 2013 at a local building – 1 S. New York Avenue – there was a Hurricane Sandy Environmental, Economic and Health Impacts Conference. I didn’t find out about but I was walking by the building and saw the sign and was happy I did and went inside. It was from 9-3 p.m. I arrived at 2 so I did miss a lot and stayed until the end. The little bit of information I did hear was good. I spoke to a couple that was leaving with me and asked them had they been there all day. They said they had and was very pleased with the event because FEMA gave a lot of information and they would speaking with their insurance company on Monday to ask the great questions that were suggested. While I was there the gentleman who is the insurance specialist for FEMA was, in my opinion, speaking against public insurance adjusters. He was saying that people should beware of them because they cannot always get you the amount of money they say they can. I’m not sure about that because everybody is always trying to take from the little guy and you know how big government is but of course you do your own due diligence and decide what is best for you. From my point of view, public insurance adjusters do a pretty decent job but just like any other industry there is always room for improvement.
