One of the worst things about disasters is that you never know when they might strike. Although we can't predict the future, we can certainly help you prepare for it. That's why we created the Disaster Resource Center - to keep you informed, and more importantly, prepared, for anything from natural disasters to terrorist attacks.
Attention Liberty Mutual Policy Holders
Our first concern is that you remain safe during the winter storms. If you do sustain damage, The Liberty Mutual Response Team Is Ready to Go - Claims Representatives will be available 24/7 to assist if need to report a claim:
Storm Preparedness and Safety – check the Liberty Mutual Catastrophe Center for valuable information regarding safety before and after a storm.
A catastrophe denotes any sudden disaster that causes substantial damage over a sizeable area. Although the most common catastrophes are often caused by natural disasters, other devastating events can include terrorism, airline accidents, and health epidemics.
The Disaster Resource Center provides informative articles and preparedness checklists for all types of emergency situations. Our library of disaster-related resources can help you and your family prepare for a variety of catastrophes and teach you how to play it safe when disaster strikes.
Ready.gov . Launched
in February 2003, Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA)
campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and
respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. The
goal of the campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to
increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation. Ready and
its Spanish language version Listo ask individuals to do three key
things: (1) build an emergency supply kit, (2) make a family emergency
plan and (3) be informed about the different types of emergencies that
could occur and their appropriate responses. The campaign’s messages
have been distributed through: television, radio, print, outdoor and Web
(PSAs) developed and produced by The Advertising Council.

Being prepared for emergencies is crucial at home, school, work and in your community.
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace or school or can confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services - water, gas, electricity or telephones - were cut off?
Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. The best way to make you and your family safe is to be prepared before disaster strikes. The American Red Cross helps prepare communities for emergencies and keeps people safe every day.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
DISASTER. It strikes anytime, anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is a part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The primary mission of the Federal Emergency Management Agency is to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the Nation from all hazards, including natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters, by leading and supporting the Nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation.
