Sparking Solutions: Wildfire Risk and Insurance

November 30 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST

Wildfire insurance is a useful tool to shield homeowners from the devastating impacts of wildfires. However, in some high-risk areas —particularly in California—it has become difficult to obtain an affordable policy. Some insurance companies have begun to charge higher premiums, increase deductibles, limit payouts, and even decline to write a policy at all. In these instances, homeowners can turn to Fair Access to Insurance Requirements (FAIR) plans, but these options are typically expensive and provide less coverage.

Join Resources for the Future (RFF) on Wednesday, October 12, for an RFF Live event exploring wildfire insurance, the third in the “Sparking Solutions” webinar series. In this session, experts will discuss the important role that insurance plays in sending signals about risk, how to balance that with equity and affordability, and what options exist for handling the growing problem of insuring wildfire risks.

Speakers
Carolyn Kousky, Resources for the Future and Environmental Defense Fund
Mike Peterson, California Department of Insurance
Nancy Watkins, Milliman
Penny Liao, Resources for the Future (Moderator)

Date and Time: Nov 30, 2022 12:00 PM (EST)
