Do Take This — The Cascadia Earthquake Insurance Survey

We’re down to the last couple of weeks of the Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup’s (CREW) survey. We decided to keep it open until May 17.

If you sell homeowners or renters insurance policies, please take this 5-minute survey to help CREW understand your experiences and opportunities for discussing earthquakes and earthquake insurance with consumers.

CREW ( is surveying insurance agents who sell homeowners or renters insurance in the western United States in order to gain insight from their experiences and help emergency managers and earthquake preparedness educators engage more effectively with both agents and consumers. Funding for this project is provided by a grant from FEMA’s National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program.
