Weather and Natural Catastrophes


If your organization is impacted by wildfire risks, here you’ll find information, guidance, and insights about how you can prepare, respond, recover, and remain resilient.

In recent years, wildfires have increased in both frequency and severity as a result of rapid climate change, prolonged droughts, and extreme storm events. Wildfires cause billions of dollars in damages each year, burning through acres of property and natural wildlife to disrupt and endanger day-to-day life for homeowners and businesses, while putting many first responders at great risk.

For individuals, businesses, and organizations located in high-risk areas, it's important to take preventative measures to protect what matters most. These steps may include fully assessing the potential physical and economic impacts of a wildfire, deploying specialized building features, creating evacuation and crisis plans, and developing the right portfolio of insurance coverage to effectively support the process of recovery and reconstruction.

If your organization could be or has been affected by a wildfire, these resources can support your resilience and recovery.
