New Outreach Tools Focus on Financial Preparedness for Earthquakes

A new information hub and outreach toolkit launched by CREW provides easy access to online resources and ready-made outreach tools to help earthquake preparedness educators and other seismic professionals share financial readiness tips that can help speed and strengthen recovery after a damaging earthquake. The hub includes messaging recommendations and examples, as well as information about earthquake insurance.

CREW Presents a 3-Minute Video Illustrating How to Prepare Financially for an Earthquake

CREW and our central-U.S. partner CUSEC consulted with preparedness and insurance experts to create this short (3-minute) video to help educate the public about earthquake insurance and financial preparedness.

You can view and share the video in English or Spanish on the Insure Against Earthquakes Vimeo channel. If you would like to download the video, please contact CREW at

The video will soon be accessible on the Insure Against Earthquakes site, a new information hub that CREW is producing to provide easy access to information about earthquake insurance and outreach tools that can be used to promote awareness and preparedness actions.

And don’t forget to register for the Mind the Gap earthquake insurance forum on March 28. It’s an opportunity for emergency managers, other disaster preparedness professionals, and disaster insurance experts to explore and discuss the issues and challenges involved in expanding the role of earthquake insurance in preparedness and post-earthquake recovery.
