Crawford Canada prepares for Hurricane Dorian to make landfall in Atlantic Canada this weekend
As Hurricane Dorian progresses up the East Coast of the United States, Crawford Catastrophe Services and our management team in Atlantic Canada are preparing for the storm’s arrival in that region this weekend. The firm’s 24/7 CLAIMSALERT call centre will be monitoring the storm’s progress and call volume around the clock this weekend with adjusters in the region prepared to respond to emergency claims after hours. The Catastrophe Services team will be supported by Contractor Connection, whose members have been preparing for an influx of new assignments.
There continues to be some uncertainty around the track and severity of the storm, as there usually is with hurricanes. However, Environment Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard has warned, “It’s going to be a very significant wind event.”
Jim Eso, senior vice president, property & casualty for Crawford Canada commented that “Our mission is to restore lives, businesses, and communities. That mission is never more evident than when widespread weather events impact a large region. Crawford has already deployed an international team of adjusters to The Bahamas to assess the damage in that region and has many resources from across Canada and around the world standing by to assist in Atlantic Canada should they be required.”
