If the chill is in the air, the leaves are falling and the pumpkins are fat, it must be October! It's a great month to urge your insureds to prep for the long winter months ahead. Plus, there are many national health and safety events and observances throughout the month to use as themes in client communications. The month kicks off with Cyber Security Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. October also has a focus on crime prevention, fire prevention and teen driver safety. With Halloween at the end of the month, promote child safety, pet safety and homeowner liability issues! There are a number of other themes from National Apple Month to Adopt a Shelter Dog. We've gathered some links to get you started.
