Preparing the Northwest

brought to you by NW Insurance Council

The Northwest is a hotbed for natural disasters.  Earthquake, tsunami, windstorm, wildfire, volcanic eruption and flood are just a few of the hazards residents face year round.  With advance planning, however, homeowners, renters and business owners can effectively prepare for the worst.

Natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time with little or no warning.  Developing an effective emergency preparedness plan is the first step to surviving the devastation.  Making insurance a part of that plan will help you understand what’s covered and what’s not and how much insurance coverage you need to adequately protect your home, business, possessions and financial interests.

NW Insurance Council, its member companies and its partners are dedicated to helping Northwest families and businesses prepare, survive and recover from disasters by providing accurate and timely information on insurance issues relevant to the Northwest.
