FEMA and National Association of Realtors Partner to Improve Disaster Preparedness

FEMA and National Association of Realtors Partner to Improve Disaster Preparedness

On Nov. 2, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) announced an agreement to work together to educate consumers and homebuyers about disaster preparedness. NAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall and FEMA Administrator Brock Long signed the memorandum of agreement at the 2018 REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Boston, MA.

Insurance is the best way for homeowners, renters and businesses to financially protect themselves from losses caused by floods, fires and other disasters. This is an opportunity for FEMA and NAR to collaborate on getting out information about emergency preparedness, insurance, and assistance information to the public.

The agreement allows FEMA and NAR to work together to educate and help the nation prepare for disasters better, while it also allows Realtors® to continue supporting the Realtor Disaster Relief Fund.
