  • Providing a 24hr escalation path for insurance queries from the impacted community.
  • Providing key insurance data and decision support to the community and government.
  • Providing clear public communication about the insurance response to the event.
  • Providing liaison between insurers, assessors, brokers, trades, suppliers at an industry level on issues of collective importance to delivering services to the impacted community.
