Crawford & Company responds to hail damage and flooding in Calgary
The world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management and outsourcing solutions to carriers, brokers and corporates has confirmed that it has activated its national catastrophe team to respond to the hail damage and flooding in Calgary. The firm’s local loss adjusters began responding to claims in Calgary immediately after the storm subsided and began dispatching contractors from its Contractor Connection® managed repair network from across the region. Additional resources from within Alberta, across Canada and internationally are ready to deploy on short notice to meet client needs.
On Saturday, June 13, a massive storm brought tennis ball-sized hail and flooding northeast Calgary resulting in flooding and hail damage. Photos of the storm’s aftermath show automobiles stranded on flooded roadways and severe damage to the roofs and siding of numerous homes.
“As with the recent flooding event in Fort McMurray, COVID-19 precautions that ensure the health and safety of our employees and policyholders will remain front and center when responding to this event. Crawford’s catastrophe plans and COVID-19 contingency plans have been developed for this scenario and will ensure we can deploy our resources when and where they are needed,” said Jim Eso, senior vice president, Crawford Claims Solutions in Canada
