Red Cross raising disaster awareness in California

Posted On Mon, April 9, 2012

The American Red Cross and the California Earthquake Authority recently joined together to promote earthquake preparedness, according to the Insurance Journal.

The partnership was created in the form of an auction to encourage Californians to take earthquakes seriously, as well as being aware of insurance options. The state has the highest earthquake risk in the United States, the news source noted. Serious earthquakes are known to hit the state at least every couple of years.

"I think it's a great alliance," said Harold Brooks, CEO of the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter. "It puts the energy and focus on something we think is very important: coping with and recovering from disasters and earthquakes. I think it's a partnership that can only get stronger and better as time goes on."

While a homeowner will likely need to take out disaster insurance separately, it may be vitally important to ensure that the person's home insurance policy is up to date. Going online and comparing a person's current plan with other home insurance quotes may ensure they get the best deal for the money.
