Most of the nation is shivering with record-breaking low temperatures. As a licensed insurance adjuster in Texas, it’s unlikely you’ll work a lot of winter weather catastrophe sites here. But if you earn your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License from 2021 Training, you’ll be licensed to go on deployments to the 16 states that don’t have state-specific licensing programs – and a lot of them get very cold. From nor’easters in New Jersey to blizzards on the plains of the Dakotas, you’ll be qualified to work them all. Consider this a quick guide to what you might encounter in the field and how to make sure you’re prepared.
Part of being a licensed insurance claims adjuster is being ready to travel at a moment’s notice. You never know where and when disasters will happen, so you should keep a well-stocked travel bag that you can grab and go when catastrophe strikes. Even if some of these items seem like no-brainers, trust me when I say it’s better to gather everything ahead of time while you have a clear head than it is to try and remember everything you need when you’re hurrying off to a deployment.
