Catastrophic losses, or CAT5 losses, are considered events that are severe enough to cause damage that is excessively more than usual. Think major hurricanes, an event like the Memorial Day tornadoes we had a few years ago. Damage that is done to a widespread area and/or affecting multiple properties usually but could also be considered a large apartment complex, huge commercial building, among plenty of other different scenarios.
A Catastrophic loss requires a plethora of things:
- Number 1: A devoted team that has experience in dealing with this type of damage and can focus all of their attention to this situation with no distractions.
- Number 2: You need to obtain or have a special certification to work and estimate catastrophic losses due to so many things involving major amounts of damage, funds, and resources needed to restore the property back to normal.
- Number 3: Multiple hours a year devoted to CAT5 training. Natural disasters are growing more and more every year and so are building blueprints. Buildings built back in the 1950s are way different structurally and technologically than now in the 2020s. This means our teams need to complete multiple hours of training every year to keep up with everything they could encounter on a CAT5 job.
