Fires can cause damage any time, even when the weather is cold and dry. Protect yourself with some basic prevention, and you will be glad you did.

The first thing you can do to prevent your home’s loss to wildfires is to look at the perimeter for fire dangers. Do you have an improperly ventilated chimney? Is your roof made of wood? You can solve these problems readily. Then, look for dry brush or greenery in your yard or near your home. In a fire, it will spread the wild flames to your house like kindling. Ask your insurance agent about home improvements you can make to lower your risk of fire damage.

You may be surprised to learn that your homeowners insurance may not cover destruction from wildfires. When you need advice about your homeowners insurance coverage in Palm Springs, California, contact 1st Community Insurance Services.
