In the midst of one of the most active wildfire seasons on record, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company has expanded its wildfire program to include response services, which may include the application of fire-blocking solutions to a policyholder’s home and surrounding vegetation.

The Wildfire Response Program, which already included wildfire assessments and extensive wildfire preparation for homes and land, now provides a complimentary additional layer of protection to eligible Prestige Home policyholders who enroll.

"One-third of homes are in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) making them vulnerable to wildfire," said Kathleen Stalter, Western Risk Services and Solutions Manager, Fireman’s Fund. "Fireman’s Fund is committed to the philosophy of pre-event preparation making our Wildfire Response Program vital to our policyholders."

During a wildfire, actions to defend a home from wildfire may include removal of combustible materials from around the home, set-up of a perimeter sprinkler system and spray the home or surrounding property with a fire-blocking solution.

The Wildfire Response Program is currently offered in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

In addition to wildfire response services, Fireman’s Fund supports the local Fire Services ongoing wildfire control services
