Mayor Coyne asked that we also share this important piece of advice for every attendee (and particularly for the small businesses in our audience):

In your emergency planning, check your insurance policy carefully! Understand what will and will not be covered in a range of emergency situations—and upgrade it if necessary. In the aftermath of last year’s flooding in Princeton, he shared, some community members and businesses discovered exclusions they had no idea would apply and found themselves with little to no coverage. Among those were companies that were forced to shut down due to power and heat outages and supply issues but who were not included in the evacuation orders. Consider the range of risks to your business from a broader lens and look for coverage to mitigate that risk before you find yourself in an emergency situation.
