Ahead of the winter period - during which storms and heavy rainfall occur regularly - consumers need to conduct appropriate maintenance checks to ensure their vehicles are in a roadworthy condition to travel in unpredictable weather, as well as conduct comprehensive maintenance repairs and checks to relevant areas of their homes.
This is according to Christelle Colman, CEO of Europ Assistance South Africa, who states that severe storms can cause enormous damage to houses and cars due to gale force winds, hail or flooding. “By being pro-active and conducting the necessary risk-management, South Africans can lower their risk of facing damage to their homes and vehicles caused by extreme weather.”
Please see the full media release below where she provides a risk-management checklist for South Africans to mitigate damage to their possessions, ahead of the storm expected this week.
Colman is also available for interviews to discuss;
- Why it is important to be pro-active and implement precautionary measures ahead of the storm
- Her tips to homeowners for conducting comprehensive maintenance checks to relevant areas of the home
- Important vehicle checks that motorists need to conduct ahead of driving in wet weather
- The important role of emergency assistance services during severe storms
