Fireworks, Family, & Floods; Take Caution with EventGuard this Independence Day
With the 4th of July quickly approaching, Americans are eagerly awaiting a long, relaxing weekend filled with quality time around family and friends. Many people plan to enjoy a sunny day on the lake or at the pool, a backyard BBQ, and the quintessential 4th of July fireworks display to end our day of independence. With gatherings of all scopes and sizes occurring across the nation, some being hosted by cities themselves, it is wise to mitigate risk through the use of Event Cancellation Insurance as a precautionary measure.
As we all know, the weather can be extremely unpredictable. As a result, cities all around the country have been forced to make changes to their 4th of July Itinerary. Atlanta and neighboring cities, Douglasville and Marietta, have cancelled their Parades trading them in for an indoor option where guests can enjoy food and festivities without the burden of inclement weather. Unfortunately, those cities can expect a less than average community turnout due to the last minute holiday event changes. The ability to control the weather is something you will never have, but peace of mind knowing that you are covered in the worst of conditions is provided by Hays Companies.
Another form of protection to consider while hosting an event/gathering this upcoming weekend is Event Liability Insurance. It is important to note the risks associated with a long holiday weekend. These include crowded lakes, open flames, and fireworks. According to NewsWeek.com, an average of 230 people are injured due to fireworks every Independence Day. Event Liability can extend from personal injury or rented damages, all the way to liquor liability as well.
In preparation for the upcoming festivities, we hope this serves as a reminder of how important it is to be adequately covered for all circumstances that may occur. Event Cancellation Insurance and Event Liability Insurance are products that can make a big difference because all events have potential of being cancelled or interrupted. Hays Companies is offering EventGuard, the most comprehensive product for your event needs. Get your peace of mind back and let Hays Companies help you manage your risk.
