The Department’s representatives will help homeowners, renters and business owners with insurance-related issues, including answering their questions and helping them understand specific issues related to their insurance policies.

In Babylon Village, they will be joined by members of a local group, Babylon Helps, that provides assistance including hot meals and property cleanup, mental health services and seminars on rebuilding resources. Babylon Helps representatives will also be available to discuss community resources available to consumers.
