No homeowner is ever fully prepared for the wrath of Mother Nature, but a natural disaster can be financially devastating to condominium, cooperative and homeowner associations. With fires raging through Florida and hurricane season approaching in coastal areas, the Community Associations Institute urges associations to plan now for potential problems. CAI's best-selling guide, Disaster Management for Community Associations, discusses the 16 major perils your associations could face and the seven Ps of successful disaster planning.
From utility interruptions and fires to earthquakes and floods, Disaster Management analyzes the likelihood of specific perils that associations may face and how to manage them. The guide offers sample disaster plans and insurance claim checklists to improve an association's performance before, during and after a disaster.
Part of the Guides for the Association Practitioner (GAP) Series, Disaster Management for Community Associations is one of 26 nuts-and-bolts publications offering proven solutions for every aspect of community association management.
