Profiles in Risk – E110: Clark Poland of FEMA on FEMA’s Goals For Disaster and Emergency Mitigation

This recording occurred 3 weeks ago. It is coincidental that it is being broadcast during the weekend of perhaps the worst hurricane to ever strike the Carolinas, Hurricane Florence. FEMA has many, many resources available for anyone affected by this event (if you are an insurance professional, you may want to take note of these):

The FEMA mobile app (https://www.fema.gov/node/35141) as well as
Disaster Assistance (https://www.disasterassistance.gov/)

In this episode, Clark Poland and I discussed FEMA; its mission and many of the initiatives FEMA has in place to reduce, mitigate and prevent loss. FEMA has a lot of big goals and is eager to work with the public and private sector, including insurers, to make those goals a reality.
