Pool Safety This Summer

With the warm weather of summer upon us and your activities around the house being more focused outside and by your pool, it is a good idea to properly maintained the area to reduce the risk of a loss.

If you don’t currently have a pool and are thinking of adding one, this will increase your liability risk so you may want to consider purchasing additional insurance to make sure you are covered in the event of a loss. You can also purchase an umbrella policy, which is inexpensive and can provide $1 million of additional liability for between $200 and $300 a year. Talk with your Rand account manager for more information about the best coverage.

Make sure your backyard and pool are ready for summer and is a safe place.
