Catastrophe or "CAT" Adjusters are a special type of insurance claims adjusters (frequently called “Storm Troopers”) that are deployed to a catastrophic large-scale event. This could be a hurricane, hailstorm, flood, wildfire or any major storm event that requires insurance companies to deploy independently contracted CAT Adjusters to the affected region. There are Residential Adjusters and Commercial Adjusters. These men and women have unique skill sets and are willing to be away from home for long periods of time, in harsh conditions with limited services, and work long days under pressure of time constraints imposed by law. It can be physically and equally mentally challenging.
