For the first time in decades, the Carolinas faced what was, at its peak, a major category four hurricane with the potential to rip homes from their foundations. Over a million residents were instructed to evacuate eastern North Carolina in the days leading up to the storm, finding temporary places to stay in Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Atlanta or other inland cities distanced from the coast.
Wildfire season is lasting longer and becoming more of a major cost driver for insurers in the U.S. Many adjusters and first responders use Temporary Accommodations for CAT relocation while on assignment, giving our CareTAkers first-hand stories from both survivors and first responders.
For Temporary Accommodations, headquartered in Atlanta, GA, housing isn’t just our business, it’s our passion. While we work to put disaster victims in the perfect temporary house every day, we make an effort to address those who are even less fortunate in our community.
After a tornado, hurricane, or other severe storms, you and your family will be likely overwhelmed by the situation. It’s a good idea to have a plan of action for responding immediately in the event of injury, and also dealing with the losses to your home.
While tornadoes might not seem like a common occurrence, there are tornadoes in every state and over 1,200 every year in the country, it’s a very real possibility that a tornado could affect your home.
From humble beginnings at a kitchen table in Aaron Wilson’s apartment, Temporary Accommodations has experienced exponential growth since 1996. In the past year alone, 24 new employees were welcomed into our family and to our Atlanta headquarters--which quickly started to feel a bit crowded for the company’s big dreams.
