CFO Jimmy Patronis Provides Flood Insurance Resources to Aid in Recovery Following Impacts of Tropical Storm Eta
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As Tropical Storm Eta lingers over South Florida and threatens much of the state with heavy rain and possible flash-flooding, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis is providing information and resources for those who have coverage through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
 
Managed by FEMA, NFIP offers flood insurance to help mitigate the impact of flooding on businesses, property owners and renters. For individuals that have flood insurance policies through FEMA and its federal flood insurance program, the Department encourages consumers reach out to their insurance agents for more information about filing a claim.  Consumers may also reach FEMA directly at 1-800-621-3362.
 
Floridians can also call the CFO’s Insurance Consumer Helpline toll-free helpline at 1-877-MY-FL-CFO (693-5236), to talk to a knowledgeable insurance specialist Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or visit MyFloridaCFO.com.
