2020 Wind Investigation Program

WIP Team Members

RICOWI requires each of our trained investigators to complete this confirmation form for the 2020 hurricane season. We would like to commit approximately 50 people to fill 7 four-member teams, the logistics team and some observer positions. No matter your level of participation, this is an excellent opportunity to learn first hand as well as helping others by providing information for the good of the industry.

Our teams must be balanced to avoid any bias and each team must have at least one experienced member that has served on a previous investigation. Persons with no on-roof experience with roofing materials may not fill a team slot, but will be eligible to participate as a floater or observer, to gain experience or help with logistics.

Your confirmation is a commitment to participate so we ask you to consider the obligation carefully. If we deploy, you will be giving up approximately five days from the office to participate in the program and will need to cover your out-of-pocket expenses as well.

Once the confirmation forms are received, we will set up the first string of participants and a list of alternates. Many of you have indicated you will commit but have specific time slots that you will not be available. Generally, members able to commit for the entire season will be given priority. We will then consider members that will commit but have specific dates when they will not be available to participate i.e. vacation.


The Team Member Confirmation form may be downloaded, printed and submitted via email, fax or mail, or may be submitted online using the form below.

In addition to submitting the Team Member Confirmation Form, each member must also complete the Participation Agreement.
