In less than 36 months, Crawford & Company's global network of adjusters has responded to earthquakes that completely destroyed large areas and cities in Chile, New Zealand and Japan; a resulting tsunami from the latter incident caused a catastrophic loss of life and nuclear fallout from the Fukushima plant. Floods deluged Thailand with a resulting severe strain on the globe's supply of key manufactured products and in Superstorm Sandy we saw a storm whose tidal surge damaged vast swathes of the eastern United States with wind, rain and snow moving inland to wreak havoc and cost billions in losses.

In an attempt to pull together the principal themes, challenges and lessons learnt by Crawford over this period, this paper has been created to provide reference for claims and risk professionals when considering the dynamics and challenges they may face in establishing their own risk management and business continuity strategies, so they can be "CAT ready".
