MIA Available at Hooper’s Island Volunteer Fire Co. to Help Hurricane Isabel Victims, Other Insurance Issues

March 16, 2004

A representative of the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA) will be at the Hooper’s Island Volunteer Fire Company on Monday,
March 29, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., to help citizens who are still having problems related to Hurricane Isabel or who may have other insurance issues.

“I have asked Tom Henry of my staff to go to Hooper’s Island to be available to Dorchester County residents,” Commissioner Alfred Redmer, Jr. said, “as part of our continuing effort to reach out to victims of Hurricane Isabel. Although the MIA does not have jurisdiction over the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), we are working with contacts within the Federal program to help people settle their claims. Because the MIA has built a good working relationship with the NFIP through this Isabel recovery
period, we have had success advocating on behalf of our citizens.”

“In addition,” Redmer said, “we have volunteers from other State
agencies at the MIA who can help storm victims with other unmet needs. This effort includes connecting citizens to other State agencies, private programs and/or services.”

Citizens can also talk with Henry about other insurance questions or problems and he’ll have copies of the MIA’s new Consumer Guide to Homeowners Insurance to distribute.
