Fire wreaking havoc among modern homesteads in St Francis Bay

Whilst the previous article (“As a South African, what are your concerns?”) was still being prepared to be posted on the IIB website, disaster, only a few kilometers away from PE, was wreaking havoc among 75 homesteads in St Francis. This type of calamity (which presents in many different forms and circumstances) we have all, at some point in our lives, most likely seen – it could have been the destruction of a single home in our neighbourhood or a fire destroying a valuable business or commercial building or farmstead.

The fact is, fire remains a real threat to all and besides taking the normal precautionary measures to try and prevent such an occurrence, we do need to make sure that our Short Term Insurance is adequate to compensate for the financial loss which is likely to be suffered during such an unforeseen event!
