Over the past couple weeks, we drove around Texas delivering Hurricane Harvey claim checks to departments affected by the storm, including Fulton VFD & Lamar VFD (Both Pictured). Both departments are in Aransas County, which was heavily affected.
We also delivered claim checks to Cy-Fair VFD & Harris County ESD 48 (Both pictured).
We understand many of the hardships so many departments had to go through during Hurricane Harvey and we're here to help. If the need ever arises to file a claim, contact our Claims Specialist Cherry Guidry at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 628-5184.
