The fires here in Oceanside serve as a reminder that the unthinkable can happen at any time. On Thursday of this week I woke up just like everyone else in Oceanside to a beautiful morning. Before noon there was the smell of smoke in the air. With amazing speed, the clear blue skies began to disappear as the smoke from the fires filled the air. The mid-day sun then shone down on top of the thick smoke and turned the skies into a glowing and surreal orange-grey. In a few short hours my wife and I knew that our beloved O-side was in danger.
We packed a bag just in case we had to evacuate with our two puppies. As I write this article on Friday morning, we are still very much in the danger zone and the TV news is on. It’s times like these when you realize just how fragile our daily lives are and that everything can change in an instant. It’s also times like these when you realize just how important insurance is. It’s more than just homeowner’s insurance, it’s also life insurance because disasters not only bring devastation to property, they also can cause sudden loss of life. As you read this article, you should think about what would happen if… because insurance is to protect us from the unexpected and no one expected this here this week.
My advice is that you take responsibility and make sure you and your loved ones are protected. Most homeowners have homeowner’s insurance, but for some reason they either have no life insurance or they are underinsured. Remember, it’s to protect your loved ones from the unthinkable. As a matter of fact, the unthinkable is happening because as I write this, the fires are raging out of control and bearing down on beautiful Oceanside.
Thank god for our first responders as they risk their lives to save our city. If you see them in the coming days make sure you shake their hand, pat them on the back, and say thank you.
