Microburst a Major Wake-up Call

Ninety-mile-an-hour winds swept into Connecticut this week, in a matter of minutes taking down trees and power lines, blocking roads, and leaving thousands of homes and businesses in the dark.

Maybe you were spared the worst, but if that kind of disruption happens to your business, will you know what to do?

Our latest storm was a “only” a microburst, but experts say this year could produce some major headaches: possibly 11 named storms, six of them hurricanes, and two as powerful as Category 3 or higher.

The Governor’s Economic Recovery Working Group wants all Connecticut businesses to be prepared, so is hosting two timely and informative webinars this summer—July 29 and August 26.

The free programs will feature property insurance experts on the steps you can take before and after a catastrophic event that will help your business not only navigate, but survive, and potentially thrive in the aftermath of a disaster.

The “Disaster Preparedness” webinars will take place on Wednesday, July 29; and Wednesday, August 26, both starting at 10 am. Registration is free, but required, at cbia.com.

Panelists will include Jeb McPherson, CPA, CFF, FCPA, senior consultant and FEMA project leader for Marsh Risk Consulting's Forensic Accounting and Claims Services; Marc Fabrizio, director, Risk Services, Marsh & McLennan Agency; Brett Gillmon, managing director, Marsh USA Inc.

You could, of course, risk it all, or you could take an hour for this valuable webinar that will help save your business.

Register today.
