Flood Brings Community Together

KMRD Teamwork

Flood Brings Community Together

Recently, The New York Times reported on Schoharie, NY.  Schoharie was flooded by Hurricane Irene this past summer.  Damage estimates totaled over $27 million. While many residents have yet to return to their version of “normal” following the minutes of catastrophe, they have found their emotional center in a makeshift café named Loaves and Fishes.

More than four months after the disaster anyone in need of a hot meal can stop by the café for food which has been donated and prepared by residents and neighbors.  At first the café fed up to 1,500 people a day. Today the number holds steady at about 100.

Misfortune appears in many shapes and sizes, and from a staggering number of causes. Our efforts at KMRD are to understand, mitigate and transfer inherent exposure.  We will correct and then support a clients’ risk management program before there is a claim with a singular focus of reducing the cost of risk.  We respond quickly when One Minute From Normal occurs. We admire the giving spirit which makes Loaves and Fishes possible. A sense of community when paired with insurance coverage can restore a community and its businesses to full health.

KMRD reduces the overall cost of risk for clients by producing a greater value for each insurance dollar spent, while utilizing an enterprise risk management approach to engineer the optimal solution. The firm’s diagnostic process is supported by its unique collaborative technology, KMRD XCHANGE ®

We are dedicated to anticipating risk and helping firms recover from unplanned events that wait on the other side of one minute from normal.
