With wildfire season already starting in some regions of the United States and around the corner in others, now is the time to start thinking about your physical and financial preparedness.  To help you be better informed, NFPA is hosting two free 60-minute webinars, the first being Wildfires and Insurance: Learn How to Prepare Financially.

Join us Wednesday, May 6th at 11:00 am MDT (1:00 pm Eastern)  as we speak with insurance experts Janet Ruiz from the Insurance Information Institute and Nicole Mahrt-Ganley from the American Property Casualty Insurance Association.  They will address questions about protecting yourself and your property, including important home insurance tips such as how to do an insurance check-up to prevent underinsurance and the right way to make a home inventory.

Register today and get this date added to your calendar to ensure you are a part of this informative webinar (advance registration is required). NFPA recommends registering even if you cannot participate in person, so you will receive notice when the recorded webinar is available. 

As a follow up, NFPA will be hosting a second webinar on Wednesday, May 20, 11:00 am MDT (1:00 pm Easter) with the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) on what actions residents can take to prepare their home and immediate (noncombustible) zone.  Sign up for Wildfire and Insurance: How to Protect Your Property from Wildfire as well and take control of your wildfire risk!
