Emergency Disaster Assessment Law and Legal Definition

Emergency disaster assessment is a process where insurance adjusters identify those persons who should be given access to disaster areas. Every insurer adjuster is responsible for his/her disaster area assigned. Identification badges will be issued to insurance adjusters for the purpose of identifying persons who should be given access to disaster areas.

The following is an example of the state statute that states the conditions complied under emergency disaster assessment:

Cal Gov Code § 8558 describes the three conditions or degrees of emergency includes:

1. State of war emergency means the condition which exists immediately, with or without a proclamation thereof by the Governor, whenever this state or nation is attacked by an enemy of the U.S., or upon receipt by the state of a warning from the federal government indicating that such an enemy attack is probable.

2.State of emergency means the duly proclaimed existence of conditions of disaster or of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property within the state caused by such conditions as air pollution, fire, flood, storm, epidemic, riot, drought, sudden and severe energy shortage, plant or animal infestation or disease.
