Insurance Company Prepares for Storm

Montgomery, AL – With Hurricane Ivan aiming at the Gulf Coast, a major Alabama insurance company is making preparations. Alfa Insurance President Jerry Newby says claim adjusters are on alert and hotel rooms have been reserved in south Alabama for additional Alfa employees who might be needed to help process claims. Generators and other equipment are on hand to replace any Alfa offices that get severely damaged or that are left without power. Newby says the Alfa headquarters in Montgomery has a 26-hundred horsepower generator that can keep operations going in case of a power failure.
