Allstate agents giving away disaster preparedness kits to residents

Starting Monday, participating Allstate agents are giving away disaster preparedness kits to residents.

With wildfire season heating up, Allstate agents are doing their part to help prepare local communities for natural disasters of all kinds – especially since most people (85 percent) say they aren’t prepared.

There are 135 agencies in 65 cities giving away kits throughout the state.

Participating agencies in your area:
