Words are never enough to describe the love kids have but know that nothing goes unnoticed. We thank you, we appreciate you.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in our 80 year anniversary raffle. As mentioned one lucky insured would win $800 as part of our grand prize and that person will be contacted privately. Again, our success is owed to our customers and the referrals we receive from each and every one of you.
Western Mutual is eternally grateful for the many years you have allowed us to serve you. Here’s to 80 more!
A quick reminder to all our insureds about our big milestone and referral incentive. As mentioned, Western Mutual celebrated 80 years in business back in March and we decided to raffle off $800 to one lucky insured.

A dads favorite season is upon us, otherwise known as grilling season!
Before we light up the coals, we must remember some safety tips to enjoy our Summer – accident free.
Do remember to keep your grill a minimum of 10 ft from your home as heat and embers can travel and start fires. Also, clean your grill regularly so that you avoid the buildup of grease which could cause unwanted flare ups. Never turn on the gas while your grill lid is closed, it produces gas build up inside your grill and may cause a fireball at the time of ignition.
While grilling, never leave your BBQ unattended as fires double in size every minute. Plan ahead so that all of your other food prep chores are done and you can focus on grilling. It is also important to not overload your grill with food. This applies especially to fatty meats. The basic reason for this tip is that if too much fat drips on the flames at once, it can cause a large flare-up that could light nearby things on fire.
And of course, it is highly recommended to keep a fire extinguisher in close proximity just in case.
We can all use a little motivation from time to time and with the stress of work-life balance and realizing that we are 1/4th of the way done with 2022…we think now is the best time for some words of encouragement.
Below are some of our favorite quotes, we hope one resonates with you and gives you the motivation to keep going.
“It always seems impossible, until its done” -Nelson Mandela
“Life is like a bicycle, to stay balanced you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible” -Dali Lama
“Fight for things you care about, but do it in a way that others will join you” – Justice Ruth Ginsburg
How long could you last if you had to survive on what you currently had in your home?
A question that we don’t really want to think about but is crucial to have answered in case of a natural disaster like an earthquake.
The CDC recommends knowing the four S’s in case of an emergency: Signs, Safe Spots, Strategy and Supply kit.
First and foremost, know the signs of an earthquake and know that when there is one there may be more! Secondly, know the safe spots in your home to seek for cover if you are not able to drop and cover. Furthermore, create a strategy on where you would meet, who you would check on-assigning everyone a responsibility. And lastly, check your supply and have it restocked with enough to get you through 3 days.
Some things to keep in your supply kit include water (one gallon per person per day, for drinking and sanitation), non-perishable food, flashlight, first aid kit, battery powered or hand crank radio, any necessary medicines and pet food and water.

Reviewing your homeowners policy should be a part of your annual checklist, just like filing your taxes is. There are many reasons why your homeowners insurance policy may need to be updated. Things such as changes in home or personal property valuations, new additions to the cosmetics or home features can affect your rates significantly.
Things to consider informing your insurance company when reviewing your policy are;
Home Improvements – If you decide to renovate your kitchen, finish the basement or add an extra bedroom, this will increase the replacement cost of your home. It’s important to adjust this coverage in your homeowners policy accordingly.
Property Value Increase – If the last time you reviewed your insurance was when you first bought your home, it would be wise to check that your coverage has adequate reconstruction cost value reflective of today’s market value.
Home Protection Systems – Whether that be a central alarm system for burglary and/or fire. Or a smart water leak detector that monitors your water usage. Any upgrades to your home should be noted with your insurance carrier as well.
Checking Discounts – Insurance companies continually change the discounts they offer, so ask your agent for a full list of current discounts to see if there are some you can take advantage of to reduce your premiums.
So as stated above, a home insurance review could lead to additional savings on premiums.
Whether your weekend is filled with confetti eggs or chocolate ones, we would like to say Happy Easter from all of us here.
Let us know how you’ll be celebrating by commenting on our social media posts.
We are happy to announce that Western Mutual will be a sponsor at the 2022 Paws and Patriots Golf Tournament taking place at the beautiful Tustin Ranch Golf Club on Tuesday, May 3rd.

Patriots and Paws specializes in connecting these brave men and women to an emotional support companion. This new chapter allows these animals to have and serve a purpose and funds help furnish the new homes for the veteran and their pet.
So, come golf with us for a great cause! Or if you would you like to donate a round to a veteran…you can do that by writing “VETERAN” in one of the player’s spots on the registration form! See you on the green.
