  1. I hope this helps. There’s more to disaster preparedness/recovery than meets the eye. When it comes to our property, what do we expect in case of loss (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, fire, etc.)? The disaster itself is news.

Insurance policyholders, and more importantly disaster survivors, need to be informed of access to equality–basic rights and information.
