Earthquake insurance can be a powerful tool for speeding and strengthening recovery after an earthquake, yet data show that uptake of residential earthquake insurance in the U.S. is low. So what’s driving this earthquake insurance gap? Can anything be done to help increase the number of insured households in earthquake country?
On March 28, CREW and our central-U.S. partner CUSEC will be hosting a national forum to take a closer look at earthquake insurance, paying particular attention to the issues and challenges that have so far limited its role in financial preparedness. This free one-day event is an opportunity for emergency managers and insurance professionals to discuss the potential role of insurance in post-earthquake recovery and to learn more about research and messaging tools that they can use in their earthquake education and outreach programs.
