Earthquake Insurance & Preparedness Video: Now with ASL!

Excerpt of the video, showing quick-draw illustrations and ASL translator.

CREW, with our partner CUSEC, produced a 3-minute quick-draw video that can be used in public preparedness campaigns to help educate people about earthquake insurance and other steps they can take to prepare financially for earthquakes. We’re pleased to announce that this video is now available with an American Sign Language (ASL) translation, curtesy of FEMA Region 10.

The new ASL version is part of a suite of videos that you can view, share, and download for free: Incorporate them into your preparedness outreach messages to help spread the word about what people can do today to improve the strength and speed of their recovery after a damaging earthquake.

All of the videos are available in both English and Spanish, with closed captioning:

New from CREW: Earthquake Preparedness Videos

Just in time for the International Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill this Thursday (October 20), we’re pleased to announce the release of five new quick-draw videos to help spread the word about earthquake preparedness!

Each short video shares tips and messaging about financial preparedness for earthquakes, which can help ensure a quicker, stronger recovery after a disaster. The videos are free and easy to download, so you can share them as part of a social media campaign or embed them in a web page. They’re available in both English and Spanish and come with closed captioning. You can also choose from different file sizes to suit your needs.

  1. Financial Preparedness video (about 1 minute)
  2. Earthquake Insurance for Renters video (about 1.5 minutes)
  3. Earthquake Insurance for Homeowners video (about 2 minutes)
  4. Disaster Aid / Earthquake Insurance video (about 30 seconds)
  5. Know What’s In Your Insurance Policy video (about 30 seconds)

A longer (3-minute) financial preparedness video is also available — and you can access many other free preparedness education products on the Insure Against Earthquakes outreach hub.

Funding for the development of the videos was provided by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program.
