Here are a few highlights of our Wildfire Defense Services:
Before Wildfire Season (Year-Round Service)
A Chubb Risk Consultant can provide a personalized wildfire hazard assessment (available upon request), with specific recommendations for how to protect your home in the event of a wildfire. For example, they can help recommend ways to reduce the fuel around your home that may feed a wildfire (e.g., combustible materials like woodpiles or grass welcome mats) or identify other protective measures, like installing water tanks, pumps, or sprinkler systems that can be used in the event of a wildfire.
As a Wildfire Approaches
Working with you to proactively defend your home. Deploying certified fire professionals to your home if a wildfire is threatening your area.
After the Threat Has Passed
Return combustible material and other items that may have been temporarily relocated, as well as removing any fire-blocking gel that may have been applied to the home. During this time, WDS would be available to answer any questions you may have around our response. And, of course, we can help you process a claim if your home sustained any damage.
