Partner Webinar: Wildfires and Insurance: How to Protect Your Property from Wildfire
May 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Host: National Fire Protection Association
Presenters: Faraz Hedayati, PhD, IBHS Research Engineer, Daniel Gorham, P.E., IBHS Research Engineer
Abstract: The wildfires of 2017 and 2018 underscored the risk that wildfires can pose to many communities throughout the United States. With increasing wildfire risks for many comes the reality that preparedness is a year-round endeavor. However, reducing your risk can be affordable and practical. Research from the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) shows a variety of low-cost, do-it-yourself actions can reduce common structural vulnerabilities and increase the chances of a home or business surviving a wildfire. Wildfire experts from IBHS will join NFPA on May 20 (10-11 AM PDT) to outline how affordable weekend projects can have a significant impact on your wildfire risks.
