Wildfires Cause Billions in Insured Losses Each Year; Now is the Time to Prepare Your Home and Finances

Insurers are prepared to help homeowners and renters before, during and after major wildfires. Now is the time for residents in wildfire-prone areas to financially and physically prepare for wildfires. Everyone needs to be active insurance consumers, which means calling your agent or company yearly to discuss your coverage needs. The two most important financial preparation steps that can be taken include updating your insurance and making a home inventory. Homeowners and renters should also mitigate against wildfire by clearing debris and landscaping materials 100 feet from your home.
