Your Primary Source of Information on Catastrophes in North America

Information is the lifeblood of risk and capital management, especially for catastrophes and weather events. With Property Claim Services (PCS), you'll get immediate access to the severe weather data you need to manage your business effectively and efficiently.

PCS helps you:

  • understand the implications associated with severe weather and catastrophe incidents
  • manage and staff your operations
  • track catastrophe estimates
  • understand the scope of individual incidents and how they affect your business
  • identify triggering events as they happen
  • improve risk management and underwriting
  • make better decisions about loss reserves, risks, investments, and resources

PCS thoroughly investigates and collects data on disasters in the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada. We provide analytics that define the extent and type of damage, establish dates of occurrence, and determine the geographic areas affected. PCS assigns catastrophe serial numbers which the industry uses to track losses.

Using our national network of insurer claim departments, adjusters, emergency managers, agents, fire and police officials, and meteorologists, PCS provides data on insured losses following catastrophes and maintains contact with industry representatives in many countries.
