On demand | The wildfire landscape: A seasonal outlook, preparedness tips, and the insurance impact on homeowners

In the past 10 years, wildfires burn more than five million acres on average in the US every year. Six of the top ten costliest fires have occurred in the past four years, and large wildfire losses in recent years have brought significant change to the insurance marketplace. With almost 4.5 million US homes at high or extreme risk of wildfire damage, homeowners must take steps to educate themselves in order to prepare their property and understand what this means for their insurance coverage.

Marsh McLennan Agency Private Client Services recently hosted several experts in a virtual event to discuss the wildfire landscape.
