Course Description

Large-scale disasters are not uncommon and range from earthquakes and wildfires to snowstorms and tidal waves. Disasters regularly prompt a Federal declaration of a disaster area and this has a dramatic effect on insurance. In a declared disaster, local government, tribal government and eligible non-profit organizations (hospitals, schools, and municipal works) can apply for financial assistance through FEMA’s Public Assistance Program.

Lessons from this class will enable you to play a valuable role in protecting your client or organization from financial disaster following a physical disaster. Having good insurance coverage in place and understanding how FEMA works is essential to securing, and keeping, Public Assistance Program funds.
