A grassroots, community-based wildfire preparedness program that serves as a framework for neighbors to learn about their fire risks and take mitigative actions to protect their families, property and communities.
At the end of the two years participating communities showed that big goals of a focused approach are achievable.
Communities that fully embrace the Firewise principles have successfully protected their homes from the threat of a wildfire.
Due to recent California wildfires insurance costs are rising, and for some areas policy's are being cancelled and no longer available. When this happens the only remaining option is the California Fair Plan, which is expensive and offers less coverage.
The Glendale Fire Department and the California Insurance Commission encourages our participation in active wildfire risk reduction through the Firewise focused approach of preparedness that promotes neighborhood safety.
Most importantly to better protect family and property from the threats of wildfire. This also is an opportunity for you, with a little effort, to do something that may preserve your current insurance and its related cost.
Some insurer's may recognize Firewise certified neighborhoods as having made a meaningful risk reduction, which influences insurability and may even qualify for rate discounts.
