Disaster and Emergency Planning: Are your clients ready for an emergency outlasting 72 hours?

Register before April 28 to be entered to win your very own emergency kit!

Extreme weather-related occurrences caused by climate change continue to break records and undermine existing disaster models. At the same time, experts predict unprecedented man-made disasters, such as a cyber-attack on the power grid or a nuclear plant, can result in long-term emergency situations.

Do your clients have an emergency plan for their home and business? What if emergency situations outlast the 72-hours we’ve been told to prepare for? How do you engage your customers in a conversation about emergency planning? How can the insurance industry play a role in helping to educate the public about disasters and mitigating risk?

Join our webinar to learn about:

1. Types of natural and man-made disasters most likely to occur in Canada
2. Tips for keeping clients educated and informed about their insurance policy
3. Steps the industry needs to take for adapting to severe weather and disasters
4. Canada’s disaster and emergency preparedness plan, with recommendations for helping your clients
5. Canadian catastrophes compared to the rest of the world, and the types of risk Canada is facing
6. Mitigating risk to protect your clients’ assets
7. The new emergency preparedness mobile app, developed by Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction in partnership with AVIVA Canada
