When we started this we had no idea the response would be so overwhelming. We had over 2,600 votes for 35 local non-profits in Brevard. Incredible.
As our campaign ended and the results came in it was clear there were two very worthy organizations at the top of the list. We had the pleasure of calling the Brevard Humane Society yesterday to tell them they had won the $2500 and there wasn't a dry eye in the room. 

But we were so torn about not awarding the second place winner because it was a very close race. So in the spirit of giving we decided to award an additional $1000 to The Children's Hunger Project too!

We have been so moved by all of the stories and supporters that our one day "#KJIAGives" idea has inspired a totally new campaign... A Year Of Giving!

Congratulations to both organizations and to everyone who voted and liked and shared us. There is so much more to come because of this overwhelming response! Stay tuned!

Hurricane Matthew Update

Dear KJIA Family:

As of 11am this morning, The National Hurricane Center has put Brevard County officially under a hurricane watch. Hurricane Matthew is a powerful Category 4 hurricane in the Atlantic and all models have it coming very close to our beaches. We would like to encourage you to take all necessary precautions to safeguard your families at this time. If you live in an area under mandatory evacuation please heed all official emergency warnings.

Listed on our site is all of the claims numbers you might need in case you experience damage. Click here for a complete list of our providers.

The KJIA offices will be open as soon as possible after the storm. Please follow us on our social media for updates.

Are you ready for hurricane season?

Dear KJIA Family,

Every year during peak hurricane season in August, September and October I get a little apprehensive about incoming storms.  Here at the KJIA we really do feel like you are our family. We want to make sure you are ready in every way because “being prepared” on the Space Coast goes beyond buying water bottles and batteries… you should also know what your current insurance policy covers in the event of a storm.

For example…. do you have Flood Insurance??? Along with wind damage that occurs during a hurricane, we also see extensive flooding after a storm.  Does anyone remember Hurricane Erin?  The damage mostly caused by Erin was flooding.  Flood Insurance is a separate policy.  Flood Insurance is inexpensive to have and is essential coverage if you live in Brevard County.

Below we’ve compiled a helpful list of questions you need to know about your policy coverage. If you have made any changes to your home please contact the office so we can do a free complimentary review of your account(s).

Ask yourself…are you prepared?

2016 Hurricane Policy Checklist:

  • Check your policy limit. Is it enough to rebuild your home?
  • Do you know everything you own? And how much it’s worth?
    • Be sure you know what TYPE of coverage you have
      • Replacement Cost Coverage-– pays what it would cost to replace your personal possessions at their current value.
      • Actual Cash Value Coverage– pays to replace your personal possessions only at their depreciated value.
    • Take pictures as documentation of what you currently own
  • Does your policy provide enough Additional Living Expenses (ALE) coverage?
  • What is your hurricane/windstorm deductible stated in your policy? Can you afford it?
  • What about flood insurance?
    • People tend to underestimate the risk of flooding, but 90 percent of all natural disasters include some form of flooding—especially hurricanes!
    • An NFIP flood insurance policy provides coverage for up to $250,000 in replacement cost coverage on the structure of the home and $100,000 in actual cash value coverage for personal possessions.
      • Additional tips about flood insurance:
        • There is a 30-day waiting period for a flood insurance policy to go into effect so don’t wait until a storm is imminent to apply for coverage.
        • The NFIP offers a range of deductibles; the deductible you choose will affect the cost of the policy and the amount of money you would receive if you file a claim.
  • If you rent, rather than own, your home, have you bought renters insurance?
