We have had a lot going on the past few months and have struggled a bit to be consistent with our newsletter. We apologize for that and will strive to do better. Things here at the Agency continue to progress with our focus this year being automation. We are working hard on new ways to bring value to our clients while providing the same outstanding customer service you are accustomed to. Most of the changes will be ones you don’t see but on the back end will provide us with a more efficient way to service your accounts. We recognize that time is valuable and we want your interactions with our office to be as quick and efficient as possible. There will be more on this later.
Wow it’s hot and dry out now… what a drastic change from the past few weeks. With all that rain we are sure to have an active fire season. We’ve talked in the past about defensible space between your house and flammable bushes, trees, or weeds and how important it is to keep your yard free of this overgrowth. Now is the perfect time to give your property a hard look again. Are you ready in case a wildfire gets too close to your house? Besides the whole defensible space conversation, here are “Ten Tips for Wildfire Safety” in the event a fire is coming your way.
1). Turn a light on in each room
2). Close all windows, doors and fireplace dampers
3). Remove curtains and flammable materials from windows
4). Turn off all pilot lights and shut off propane tanks and natural gas
5). Seal attic and ground vents
6). Place outside furniture inside
7). Prop a ladder against the house for easy access to roof
8). Connect garden hoses to outside taps
9). Wet the roof and shrubs within 15 feet of all structures
10). Continually check the roof, attic and yard for embers, smoke and fire for at least 12 hours
In the event of a loss, call us as soon as possible! And good luck!

It’s with great pleasure (and some sadness) that after 41 glorious years Debi has decided to retire. Fortunately, she has agreed to transition out slowly and will be working 2 days a week for the foreseeable future. This email would be far too long if I took the time to list out all of the great things Debi has done for the Agency over the years. The Heuer Insurance Agency will be forever grateful for the years of hard work, dedication and loyalty that Debi given us all these years.
Debi – we wish you a long and happy retirement!
