AIG Private Client Group has announced that its Wildfire Protection Unit has doubled the number of trucks in its fleet and expanded its reach to other communities within California and Colorado, as a result of policyholder demand.

The Wildfire Protection Unit was created by AIG Private Client Group in 2005 as a proactive means to bolster the protection of policyholders’ homes throughout wildfire season. The complimentary service is available exclusively to AIG Private Client Group policyholders who reside within designated response areas.

Through an exclusive partnership with Firebreak Spray Systems, the Wildfire Protection Unit reviews safety measures with policyholders and utilizes Phos-Chek, the fire retardant used by the US Forest Service.

Charles Williamson, president of AIG Private Client Group, said: Every homeowner should be adequately insured so, if disaster strikes, the cost to completely rebuild is covered. At AIG Private Client Group, we supplement our financial protection with loss prevention services like the Wildfire Protection Unit to help our clients avoid property damage from occurring in the first place.
