The FIRM "Monroe County Citizens Property Insurance Guide" was designed to be a general aid to consumers in making choices about property insurance in Monroe County and the Florida Keys.  Many residents are transplants who have never been required to carry windstorm or flood insurance, so the guide answers some basic questions about these products.  It is not meant to be a substitute for formal legal or regulatory advice provided by attorneys or insurance agents, or to advise on any individual choice or claim.
