New Educational Alliance Will Provide Resources to Inform and Educate Property Owners

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, UNITED STATES


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The FAIR Foundation, a leading Florida-based consumer advocacy group and champion for creating safer, stronger and more resilient communities through consumer education and empowerment, today announced an innovative educational alliance with Federated National Insurance Company (“Federated National”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Federated National Holding Company (NASDAQ:FNHC), that will enable the growth of educational assets and communication channels. 

Federated National will serve as the FAIR Foundation’s Educational Underwriter for 2018, a first of its kind relationship between the organizations.  The alliance will provide new resources aimed at educating and informing property owners on the risks of wind, water and other natural disasters, how to physically prepare their homes and businesses to avoid catastrophic damage and how to properly protect their properties through wind, flood and homeowner’s insurance.

“This alliance is dedicated to protecting property owners from avoidable risks and keeping our communities resilient before, during and after natural disasters,” said FAIR Foundation President Jay Neal.  “We are excited for all of the opportunities this partnership provides and are grateful for the leadership and dedication of Federated National to our mission and to consumers across the country.”

With an economy fueled by real estate and tourism, Florida’s citizens, businesses, communities and economy face critical threats to resiliency in the wake of natural disasters. Proactively addressing issues critical to property owners and preparing in advance for catastrophic events provides greater protection and security for families, businesses and the economy as a whole.

Through the new partnership, Federated National and the FAIR Foundation will work to identify gaps and develop focused outreach campaigns to at-risk populations in Florida and beyond.  Property owners will have greater access to resources to protect their homes and businesses as a result. 

"We proudly support the FAIR Foundation’s mission of creating safer, stronger and more resilient communities through informing, educating and empowering consumers and are excited to take this next step in our relationship," said Federated National President and CEO, Michael Braun. "When two organizations that are focused on protecting and improving the lives of property owners come together, the combined benefit to families, businesses and communities is amplified.”
