Camp in an Age of Wildfire: Preparation, Prevention & Insurance

As the climate warms, wildfires are getting both more frequent and severe. For camps in wildfire exposed regions, this is an existential threat. This webinar will look at ways to prevent wildfire damage to your property, protect your people, and engage with first responders and your community to bolster resiliency. Crucially, it will also look at innovative ways to navigate a tightening insurance market in which many carriers are simply walking away from wildfire exposure. 

At the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Define different ways to manage their camp property to mitigate exposure
  • Describe the meaning and application of concepts such as defensible zones, as well as tools such as Barricade Gel
  • Develop a plan for prevention and response, including evacuation
  • Identify ways to work with their broker and insurance carrier to navigate a tightening insurance market
