Natural Catastrophe Preparedness

Insurance is one of the industries most affected by natural catastrophes. In 2012, Allstate experienced $2.35 billion in catastrophe loss expense.

We recognize the important role we play in helping customers and communities prepare for natural catastrophes, and actively support a range of collaborations aimed at building more resilient communities. For example, as a founding member, we work closely with to educate people living in high-risk areas. We also provide tips for how people can prepare for and recover from various catastrophe-related events on Learn more on’s tool and resources section.

Allstate is also a member and financial supporter of the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS). IBHS’s mission is to conduct objective, scientific research to identify and promote effective actions that strengthen homes, businesses and communities against natural catastrophes and other causes of loss. Allstate partners with IBHS to promote more durable homes and commercial buildings by improving building practices and by strengthening building codes so our communities are more resilient against natural catastrophes.
