State Farm Provides ICT with $25,000 Grant for Public Safety and Education Campaigns and Initiatives

Austin, TX - June 7, 2023 – The Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) actively engages in multiple public service and educational campaigns throughout the year to inform Texans about different home safety and anti-theft initiatives. Recently, ICT received a significant boost when State Farm Insurance granted $25,000 to promote and develop several educational programs across Texas.

“This grant provides an opportunity to continue and expand our campaigns and reach even more Texans. We can continue our anti-theft campaigns educating the public about how to mitigate automobile and catalytic converter thefts,” according to Rich Johnson, director of communications and public affairs for ICT. “Additionally, this grant allows us to dispense hundreds of smoke detectors to fire departments across the state for our, We're Out to Alarm Texas campaign.”

ICT actively distributes numerous Hide, Lock, and Take signs annually to communities across the state and recently partnered with the Texas Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority on the ‘Lock It Down’ campaign. Through partnerships with local police departments and commercial property owners, these programs urge motorists to hide their possessions, lock their vehicles, and take their keys to prevent theft.

The We're Out to Alarm Texas program by ICT aims to prevent loss of life and property by providing smoke alarms to Texans through their local fire departments. Since its inception in 2005, the campaign has donated over 27,000 smoke alarms to more than 50 fire departments in Texas.

“ICT's efforts align with State Farm's ‘Good Neighbor’ philosophy. We are pleased to support ICT's endeavors with the grant and look forward to continuing their collaboration,” said Felicia Hutchins, corporate responsibility analyst at State Farm. “These campaigns focus on bringing together the insurance industry, public sector, state and local government to explore different ways to keep communities safe.”

Throughout the year, ICT serves as the voice of the Texas property and casualty insurance industry. They emphasize the importance of understanding policy coverages and encourage preparedness and resilience in the face of various perils that Texans encounter, including hurricanes, wildfires, flooding, and hail.
