Free tree inspection for Firemans Fund homeowners!

It's a good idea to have trees in your yard inspected for safety and health. It's great idea when the service is provided for free.

I just had the trees inspected at my new home and found that several oak and pine trees were dead or dying. Since they overhang my roof it made sense to have them either trimmed or removed. My tree service cost me $1200 a day and they spent 3 days.

Hope for Those Hit by High Flood Insurance Premiums
The precarious financial state of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) prompted the passing of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform act in 2012. The act was an attempt to find a solution for the $24 billion deficit that the NFIP faced and to take the program to a stronger financial position. As per the provision of the Act, premium subsidies are to be phased out and new flood maps are to be drawn. There are about 5.5 million policy holders in the program and FEMA estimates that about 1.1 million (20%) receive subsidies. read article...

20 Years after the Northridge earthquake - Did We Learn?
It has been 20 years since the Northridge earthquake hit the Los Angeles area resulting in several deaths, thousands of injuries, huge business losses and massively disrupted transportation systems. The total cost of insured damages was over $15 billion - that's about $24 billion in today's money. It was, and remains today, the 4th costliest disaster in U.S. history. It's easy to think that 2 decades after such a calamity and many smaller quakes later, things will have changed, at least as far as earthquake insurance goes. The truth is that it hasn't. read article...
