Fireman's Fund Insurance Company has announced that it is introducing the Wildfire Readiness Program, a new prevention-focused program for homeowners.
The Wildfire Readiness Program was developed in collaboration with fire departments and wildfire defense companies.
The features of this new program include: wildfire susceptibility assessment; defensible space and fuels management; fire service visits; evacuation; safeguarding; and fire-retardant gel application.
Dan Cuccia, Fireman’s Fund wildfire specialist, said: Our wildfire mitigation strategy is closely aligned with, and supported by, fire departments. Our proactive measures play a critical role in reducing the likelihood that a home will burn if threatened by an advancing fire. Every dollar and every minute spent on prevention is invaluable to reduce wildfire risk.
