Eligible USAA members can now save money on their homeowner’s insurance premiums by living within the boundaries of a nationally recognized Firewise Community. Currently, those discounts are only available to eligible members in California, Colorado and Texas. A recent USAA press release announced they are in the process of expanding the discount in additional wildfire prone states.
Firewise Communities/USA® is designed to encourage local solutions for wildfire safety by involving homeowners, community leaders, planners, developers, firefighters and others in the effort to protect people and property from the risk of wildfire. For more information visit www.firewise.org.
Homeowners and communities do not have to be helpless victims, they can roll up their sleeves and work together to create Firewise Communities. The hard work that these Firewise Communities have invested over the years has seen significant saves and success stories. Over time a Firewise community engaged in making change year after year and educating and mentoring new residents creates resilient communities that can suffer much less loss in the event of a wildfire and has now been recognized by USAA.
