STEP 1: Store insurance policy information. Place your insurance policy information in a few safe places (electronically and hard copy). This will help you start the claims process after a storm.
STEP 2: Create an inventory of your valuables. Take pictures of or videotape all valuables covered under your insurance policy(s). Use the free Allstate Digital Locker application at digitallocker.com; your valuables will be captured online and easily accessible in the event you have to file a claim.
STEP 3: Prepare your property.Take a walk around your property and assess items that may be wind hazards. Trim loose shrubbery, store furniture and secure any loose materials in your yard.

Cold weather is upon the community and there are certain steps you should be taking to protect your home now.
Turn off outside spigots and disconnect hoses. If you have a separate valve there to turn off the water supply to the spigot from your home, do so and crack open the outside spigot to release any trapped water.
The heat in your home should not be set lower than 55 degrees.
Have your home plumbing winterized if you plan to turn the heat off or plan to be away for a long period of time. Last year Hurricane Sandy resulted in a loss of electricity for three days to the community which, should it occur again, is more than enough time for water pipes to freeze and rupture.
If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, have someone you can trust check inside your home periodically to make sure everything is ok.
