APCIA Urges Americans to Think about the Earthquake Potential in their Area


Earthquake preparedness is about much more than just “drop, cover, and hold on.” It is also essential to be prepared for the recovery process in the aftermath of an earthquake.

APCIA reminds all of us that advance preparation is the key to earthquake recovery. However, even in the most earthquake-prone states, relatively few people have earthquake insurance. This leaves a major insurance gap for many homeowners and businesses.

Talk with your insurance agent or company about earthquake coverage, gain a better understanding of how your policy works, and consider additional coverages that can make a significant difference following a natural disaster.

APCIA also has many resources and its Earthquake Preparedness Toolkit, which provides the steps to take before, during and after an earthquake.

Follow us on Twitter @TeamAPCIA where we will share tips and information on how to prepare for earthquakes.
