Pierce County residents will have the opportunity to attend “Disasters & Insurance” workshops that will provide impartial information about how insurance works when it comes to disasters and what renters and owners need to consider to reduce their risk.

The free workshops hosted by Pierce County’s Aging and Disability Resources, will feature industry experts who will explain the ins and outs of coverage, exclusions, and recovery after a disaster.

The presentations will focus on homeowner and renters’ insurance options. Each event will provide participants information about the different insurance products and options that are available, and how insurance will work or not work with particular types of disasters. Time will be included to ask any insurance-related questions.

“Disasters & Insurance” will be presented six times in May:

“For many people there’s an ‘it won’t happen to me’ mindset when it comes to disasters,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources manager. “We’ve all watched scenes of devastation on the news where families and individuals have lost it all, even when they thought they were secure. It’s important to know how insurance works and the coverage homeowners and renters need.”

Sessions are information only; no sales are allowed.  Each event is free and open to the public.  Anyone of any age can attend.  No RSVP is required.  For more information about the presentations, call the Pierce County Aging and Disability Resource Center at (253) 798-4600 or (800) 562-0332.
