South Carolina’s Love Joins Florida-Based Home Safety Institute

March 2, 2010

The Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) in Tampa, Fla. announced that Allison Dean Love has joined the organization as external relations consultant.

Love brings 20 years of experience in media relations, public relations and communications. Love comes to IBHS from the South Carolina Insurance News Service, where she served as executive director for the past 14 years.

Love’s primary responsibility is to expand public awareness of IBHS’ new disaster safety Research Center in Chester County, South Carolina. Unique in all the world, the lab will have the ability to subject full-sized, 2,000 square foot homes, light commercial construction and agricultural buildings to a variety of hazards, including realistic Category 3 hurricanes, hailstorms and wind-blown fire.

Construction of the IBHS Research Center will be completed later this spring. The purpose of this multi-peril research facility, funded entirely by the property insurance industry, is to identify effective methods of minimizing risk and loss to homes, businesses, and communities resulting from natural disasters.
