The Best Practices Study has been an annual study since 1983, serving as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance around the country. The annual study of leading independent insurance agencies, which is conducted for IIABA by Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, Ga., documents the business practices of these high performance agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.  Best Practices serve as a baseline, one which offers agencies an opportunity to perform better, offering exceptional service to their clients.

National Preparedness Month

Bergen County Preparedness Month | National Preparedness Month in NJ

Bergen County Preparedness | National Preparedness MonthNational Preparedness Month is here in Bergen County and across the nation.  As its name suggests  this month is a great month to think about the unexpected and how you can best prepare for a myriad of situations, from natural disasters to burst pipes and everything in between.  Much of this Bergen County preparedness involves planning and protection.  Your Bergen County insurance company can help you with planning and protection.

Where do you start when you think about preparedness.  A great place to start is with communication.  Last year’s theme for National Preparedness Month was “Don’t Wait, Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today”.  This theme highlights the need to not only make a plan but to also communicate the plan.  This can be as small as communicating with your family or taking the communication into the workplace and your overall community.

Another important part of being prepared is being insured.  There is no time like the present to sit with your Lyndhurst NJ insurance agent to discuss your current coverage and where you may be lacking.  This includes homeowners insurance, auto insurance, and business insurance to name a few.

Of course the object of National Preparedness Month is to think about your plans for a number of potential incidents and threats.  This effort is backed by FEMA and certainly stresses the need to create a plan for the worse case scenario.  Knowing your main threats is a part of this.  For example, here in Bergen County we may not be facing the threat of wildfire as communities in the West do but we certainly face the potential of hurricane related damage.  Other potential catastrophes could include power outages, terrorist activity, blizzard conditions, and contaminated water.

Contact our team at Bogle Agency Insurance for help assessing your coverage and your planning.  We welcome the opportunity to serve as your guide to insurance in Bergen County NJ.  Let our knowledge and experience help you navigate National Preparedness Month in Lyndhurst NJ.

February Is Cancer Prevention Month

Bergen County NJ Cancer Prevention

Bergen County NJ Cancer Prevention | Bogle Agency InsuranceMaking healthy choices not only increases lifespan, quality of life and overall health, it also lowers health insurance costs. Health insurance in NJ is a must for all residents who want to live healthy and fulfilled lives. But it isn’t all about visiting a doctor. Making healthy choices is the responsibility of each individual.  As cancer awareness month wraps up, we thought we would take a moment to discuss Bergen County NJ Cancer Prevention, and how as individuals we can make the right choices to help lower our risks.

It is estimated that roughly one-third of the most common cancers in the United States could be prevented and this of course extends right to our own homes here in Bergen County. The best methods of Bergen County cancer prevention include healthy eating, staying active, and not smoking.

Bergen County NJ Cancer Prevention | Lung Cancer Risk

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the primary cause of cancer-related death in both men and women in the United States. An overwhelming majority of lung cancer cases are a result of cigarette smoking. According to, in 2014 alone Americans spent $11.9 billion dollars battling lung cancer. Even second hand smoke in the home or the workplace increases lung cancer risks by 20 – 30%. Many of the cancer-causing toxic chemicals in secondhand smoke are at even higher levels than the smoke inhaled directly from a cigarette. It is astounding how many cases of cancer could be prevented by avoiding cigarette smoke.

Bergen County NJ Cancer Prevention | Skin Cancer Risk

We all love our trips down the shore in New Jersey and summer here in Bergen County are beautiful. With all the fun of summer, it is easy to forget about skin protection. Skin cancer is the #1 most common cancer in the US.  Preventing skin cancer doesn’t mean you need to stay out of the sun completely. In fact, moderate time in the sun mixed with time in the shade, wearing hats and sunglasses, and of course sun screen are huge factors in skin cancer prevention.

Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle

Staying lean and maintaining a healthy body weight has been shown to dramatically decrease the risk of a cancer diagnosis. The World Cancer Research Fund has estimated that 20% of all cancer diagnosis in the US are related to being overweight, physically inactive, poor nutrition and alcohol consumption and therefore could be prevented by a healthy diet and regular exercise.

If we all take steps to avoiding the unhealthy choices that increase our risks of cancer and instead take the positive healthy steps to reduce these risks, we will enjoy longer, more fulfilled lives and reduce the costs involved in battling this terrible disease. Bergen County cancer prevention, and cancer prevention all over the country and world should be taken very seriously.

To achieve this objective, the insurance agencies included in the annual study must first be nominated for participation by their peers and/or insurance companies to participate in this study group. The insurance agency must then submit detailed financial and operational information which is analyzed, scored, and ranked objectively for inclusion in the study on the basis of operational excellence including growth, profitability, productivity, and financial stability.

Our insurance agency qualified for participation in this status by ranking among the top performers in the annual Best Practices Study conducted by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) and Reagan Consulting. Of the thousands of insurance agencies in the United States in 2015 less than 217 insurance agencies scored high enough to qualify for this award.

Laws To Ban Texting While Underway

Laws To Ban Texting While Underway

Laws To Ban Texting While UnderwayThe issue of texting while driving is no secret to anyone these days. It’s a dangerous and careless thing to do. But, when driving a boat is the case, it is a much less talked about issue, yet has proven to be equally dangerous. There is a strong push for the texting laws of the road to expand and include the waterways.  Laws to ban texting while underway have become a hot button issue.

As reported by “A recreational boating statistics report for 2012 listed operator inattention as the leading cause of accidents on the water. According to a Coast Guard statistic, out of 4,730 reported boating accidents in a recent year, 23% involved either “operator inattention” or “improper lookout.” Although a broad category, it is by far the largest contributor to boating accidents.”

Distracted Boaters Costs Lives

These are very alarming statistics and they have caused quite a stir in the legislative world. The National Transportation Safety Board has called for legislation and tight controls on the use of electronic devices on the water. They point to the evidence suggesting that cell phone and other electronic device usage while navigating through busy waterways creates hazards similar to those on the road. This is in fact the case as many serious accidents have been documented as being caused by cell phone use distracting the driver. There have been an alarming amount of lives lost already.

According to , former NTSB Chairwoman Debbie Herman was quoted stating, “The use of wireless devices while operating vehicles in any mode of transportation poses an unacceptable distraction. Lives are being unnecessarily put at risk and lost. The agency is requesting that the Coast Guard tighten restrictions on cell phone use by its officers. It also would like the Coast Guard to work with the NTSB and issue a broad safety advisory to the entire maritime industry warning of the dangers of using cell phones for calling or texting while aboard an underway vessel.”

The Coast Guard Puts Down Their Phones

Due to these concerns and discussions, the Coast Guard has prohibited the use of cell phones by anyone operating their boats and have restricted cell phone use for other crew members. This is the first step in creating further legislation possibly leading to a cell phone ban for anyone driving a boat or personal water craft.

While many people are cheering on this legislation, looking for any way to make the water safer for their friends and family, others disagree. Many say that it is not an issue that any amount of legislation can fix, and it’s common sense and awareness that will fix the issue. It looks as if right now we will have to wait and see. One thing is for certain, we can all do our part in making the water and the roads more safe by putting down the phone.
