BELFOR Property Restoration Survey Finds Americans Remain Unprepared For Disasters
A new study from BELFOR Property Restoration (BELFOR)—the world’s largest disaster recovery and property restoration company—found that despite the U.S. experiencing 14 major natural disasters in 2018 and incurring more than $91 billion in damages, 80 percent of respondents felt they are only moderately, slightly or not at all prepared for disasters. BELFOR conducted the survey to measure household disaster preparedness and awareness in observance of National Preparedness Month, annually recognized in September.
