**VIDEO RELEASE** CFO Patronis: Prepare Now for Tropical Storm Ian

 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis issued a public service announcement urging Floridians to prepare for post-storm insurance claims now by taking photo and video evidence of the outside and inside of their homes before and after the storm. Tropical Storm Ian is expected to become a major hurricane prior to making landfall. Please visit PrepareFL.com to find the resources you need to keep you and your family safe before, during, and after the storm.

Watch video HERE.

CFO & State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis said, “Tropical Storm Ian, in the next few days, will more than likely become a hurricane. What I want you to do is take your smart phone, go walk outside your house, and shoot a video of what it looks like today. Then, go back inside your house and shoot that same video inside. If you are affected by this storm, this will give you a cut and dry example of what your house looks like before and after the storm if you had damage. You’ll have that to take to your insurance company in order to have a cut and dry claims process. God bless, stay safe, and visit PrepareFL.com for your own hurricane plan.”
