Wildfire Headquarters

Insurers Continue to Assist Policyholders Impacted by California Wildfires
APCIA Offers Recovery Information

The insurance industry remains on the scene at California’s most destructive wildfire in history. Insurers have set up mobile units at strategic locations to provide immediate assistance, and walk residents through the recovery and rebuilding process. To help answer some of the questions, APCIA has a variety of resources including a list of Insurance Claim Toll-Free Phone Numbers, “Step-by-Step Home Insurance Claim Recovery Guide” and “Tips on the Claims Process.”

2018 has seen a busy wildfire season with more than 52,000 wildfires charring 8.5 million acres to date. For residents in wildfire-prone areas this year serves as an important reminder 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.

APCIA’s Wildfire Headquarters offers vital information for those at risk for wildfire. Share the information and keep the conversation about preparation going! Follow @TeamAPCIA on Twitter using #wildfireprep.
