How to prepare for climate risk

What disasters should I prepare for?

Ask your insurer:

  • What are my coverage limits?

  • Do I have enough coverage to repair or rebuild after a natural disaster? 

  • What steps can I take to lower my risk? 

Resilience checklist:

  • 2 weeks ready (emd.wa.gov): Are you prepared to live without water or power for at least two weeks?
  • Go bag (emd.wa.gov): Do you have a what you need to take with you if you have to evacuate due to a disaster, such as a wildfire? 
  • Map your neighborhood (emd.wa.gov):Neighborhoods that are prepared for emergencies and disaster situations save lives, reduce the severity of injuries and trauma and reduce property damage.
