Flood Insurance is an important policy to consider, especially since we live in a High Risk Flood Zone. We have experienced horrible, destructive floods, especially in the past few years. The damage and devastation was so terrible that many of us were shocked watching our own local news station and realizing it was not an action packed movie.
In El Paso County, there are about 5 areas that are considered High-Risk Zones.
Flood Insurance options for you:
- Preferred Risk Policy
- if you live in a low –> moderate flood risk area, a low-cost policy may be the best option for you
- you can personalize this policy with either coverage:
- building and contents
- contents only
- Standard Risk Policy
- for clients living in high-risk areas

Coverage for Flood Insurance is determined by the value of your home or business and the included contents.
