The Institute for Business and Home Safety has remodelled its Web site. A consortium of insurance institutions, IBHS is dedicated to making natural disaster safety a core value among home and business owners. Visitors to the new site will find:

  • copies of IBHS publications, such as the award-winning Is Your Home Protected against Hurricane Damage?, which can be downloaded from the site;

  • a link to a Natural Hazards Quiz (developed in co-operation with the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC));

  • a link to the Natural Hazards Resource Directory (originally created by the Natural Hazards Center and the NGDC and now revised with support from IBHS), a comprehensive resource providing links to data sources and information about natural and human-caused disasters for the hazard management community, research scholars, and the general public;

  • the latest information on IBHS projects and programs, such as the institute's childcare center retrofit program, "Protecting our kids from disasters", and its Showcase States Program;

  • details on the upcoming 1999 IBHS Congress; and

  • other information pertaining to IBHS, its members, partners, and mission. Other Web site enhancements are planned for the coming months.
