Insurance Commissioner Causey sets up Insurance Camps, Victim Assistance Centers to help storm victims get lives back on track

VACs with FEMA, NIFP, Red Cross, Samaritan’s Purse to start Wednesday

RALEIGH -- Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey has organized consumer assistance centers to help storm victims recover from the damaged incurred by Hurricane Florence. Today, he set up Insurance Camps with the industry to allow storm victims direct access to their insurance companies.

Earlier this week, Commissioner Causey announced Victim Assistance Centers (VACs) to allow residents the opportunity to get concerns addressed by NCDOI, FEMA, The National Flood Insurance Plan, the Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse.

“We are going in to flood-ravaged areas to assist people whose homes and lives have been devastated by Hurricane Florence,” said Commissioner Causey. “We want to help people get connected with their insurance companies and other agencies who can answer questions and address concerns so they can file insurance claims and can get their lives back on track as soon as possible.”

The insurance camps were announced today and will be set up in Fayetteville and Kinston. Companies are invited to set up in the parking lots at the Insurance Camp locations listed below:
