Session Name: Insurance~~Recipe for Resilience: Ingredients to Build Better and Bounce Back
Session Description:

Widespread devastation following natural disasters proves over and over the need to raise our building standards. The knowledge and research already exist to help strengthen new and existing homes with upgrades to minimum building code requirements to reduce damage from natural hazards. Home and business owners can even choose their desired level of protection to suit their locale, risk level and budget. But how do we get people to put structural integrity above cosmetic touches? This session looks at the science of resiliency and addresses how resiliency pay offs by saving lives and reducing property damage. It also presents ideas on how to get people to build – or rebuild – better and stronger, so they can weather the next natural disaster.

Day of Week: Thursday
Time Start: 10:30AM
