Giving During the Holidays without Getting Taken
Every year during the holidays, people in Norht Richland Hills, Texas and Star Lake, New York look for ways to give gifts, not just to family and friends but also to those less fortunate. It’s the spirit of the season.
Unfortunately, some of the charities out there don’t help people as fully as they claim – or possibly not at all. As if that weren’t enough, bogus organizations take advantage of people’s goodwill by stealing credit card and bank account information, along with identities, from people who think they’re donating to a legitimate cause.
It doesn’t mean you can’t be generous this holiday season. It just means a little extra caution is in order. Here are four tips for making smart and safe holiday donations:
It feels good to be in a giving mood during the holidays. With a little legwork to look into the legitimacy and practices of the charity, your donation will help others feel good too.

Dog bites and dog-related injuries accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners insurance liability claim dollars paid out in 2015 – accounting for more than $570 million. Education efforts are underway during National Dog Bite Prevention Week to curb the incidence of dog bites, where the average claim now tops $37,000.
More than $570 million was paid out on these types of claims last year, according to the Insurance Information Institute and State Farm – which paid out a record $118 million on its own as a result of 3,100 dog-related injury claims.
Take this opportunity to learn more about dog bite prevention and help educate others so we can all work together to prevent dog bites.

Ahhhh, spring, the time of year when our thoughts turn to... needing flood insurance. (Well, maybe it's not the first thing that pops up).
Snowmelt can't be readily absorbed into ground that is still thawing, so melted snow runs off and flows into lakes, streams and rivers, causing banks to overflow.
Remember, flood risk is everywhere, year-round. Melting snowmen and the approach of sunscreen weather aren't the only things to watch out for.
February 25 and 26 of 2016, we will be sponsoring an ad for the KFXR 1190 “Don’t Text and Drive” Commercial. Be sure to listen in on these days.

Buying cyber insurance
You can buy cyber risk insurance directly from an insurer or from a broker/agent.
Policies are generally available for Small Businesses with cover limits between$100k and $5 million, although significantly higher amounts of cover are available for firms facing more complex cyber risks.
Managing cyber risks
As well as putting adequate insurance in place, it is important for you to manage your own cyber risks as a business. This includes:
In 2014 the Government launched Cyber Essentials – a basic cyber security hygiene standard to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber-attacks. Considering Cyber Essentials accreditation is a good first step in becoming cyber resilient.
If you suffer a cyber breach, having cyber insurance can make the recovery process as straightforward and rapid as possible (however it is still likely to take a number of days or weeks depending on the severity of the incident). Many insurers include technical assistance with managing a breach as part of the insurance policy – if so, get in touch with them as soon as possible after the breach is discovered.
With colder temperatures creeping into the state, Texans are finding various ways to keep warm and unfortunately some of those methods can be deadly. Both fire and emergency medical personnel say they see more house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning during the winter months than any other time.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is known as the “silent killer” and it is the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S. Carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless and colorless. Emergency medical responders say the worst things residents can do to stay warm is turn on gas stoves or bring generators and heaters designed for outdoor use into their homes.
“We respond to dozens of carbon monoxide related incidents each winter, usually involving more than one person,” said Commander Mike Benavides of the Austin/Travis County Emergency Medical Services. “Patients typically are suffering from headaches, nausea, dizziness or other levels of altered mental status. Once this type of toxic exposure is identified, we immediately remove them from the effected location and provide them fresh air and/or supplemental oxygen. More severe cases may necessitate the transport of patients to a bariatric chamber for treatment.”
Benavides said the most common sources of carbon monoxide are kerosene space heaters, charcoal grills, propane heaters and stoves and gasoline or diesel powered generators which should only be used outdoors.
Unattended fireplaces can also be deadly for Texas residents. State Fire Marshal Chris Connealy said just one spark flying out of a fireplace can be a life-changing event.
“Left unattended, it’s essential to use a screen or glass enclosure to keep sparks, rolling logs and embers from jumping out of the fireplace and starting a fire,” said Connealy. Connealy said never use gasoline, lighter fluid or other fuel to light the fire.
Last year, there were more than 2,000 residential structure fires in Texas, resulting in six fatalities, 90 injuries and causing approximately $50 million in damages.
The Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) also urges residents to have a working smoke alarm. “Smoke alarms are a lot like insurance,” said Mark Hanna. “You can go to bed at night knowing that you are protected in the event of a fire.”
The Insurance Council of Texas is the largest state insurance trade association in the country consisting of approximately 500 property and casualty insurers writing business in Texas.

Perfect time to make sure that your contents and property coverage are enough to cover your loss should this happen to you. Do not let fire stop you from enjoying the new year.
