What to Expect:

Attendees will focus on the science behind the FORTIFIED standard and how the program reduces damage from high winds in this virtual DDA event. Attendees will gain insight into the designation levels and learn how specific elements work to reduce and even prevent avoidable losses. FORTIFIED plays a key role in enhancing building codes to increase durability against high-wind, wind-driven rain, and hail. Members will also learn how continuing education and communication are vital to the adoption and expansion of the program into vulnerable communities exposed to the hazards of high winds, hail, and wind-driven rain. 

Who Should Attend:

We encourage Members from operational and analytical roles who are or will be involved with products that have a FORTIFIED component to register.  


Thoughts from Past Attendees

“This information was very helpful and is of value to my role in the claims organization. Info regarding the inaccuracy of observer data is a key callout as it is often foundational in deploying claim associates. I would recommend [DDA] to all Directors in our Underwriting, Product and Claim organizations.”
