Earthquake Risk Planning
Planning for events that we don’t normally like thinking about is important, however the fact that most don’t like thinking about those certain things is what keeps most people from making those necessary plans in the first place. Take earthquakes for instance; we may have been lucky enough to not have had to deal with a major earthquake in Canada, but that doesn’t mean that one couldn’t happen and that we shouldn’t be as adequately prepared as possible.
‘Despite the fact that Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City are vulnerable to earthquakes, at least 95% of homeowners in Eastern Canada do not pay an additional $200 a year for earthquake endorsements.’ (Greg Meckbach, canadianunderwriter.ca) Whether it’s fear of the possibility of it happening, confidence that it won’t (since it’s been almost a decade since the last earthquake that was felt and caused damage..the last major earthquake that measured 5.8 magnitude on the Richter scale in Montreal was in 1732) or indifference, the idea that it could happen presents a unique opportunity for us to provide special education and protection to help keep give additional peace of mind.
