Wildfires

Wildfire season is here

Guard against losses

In 2018, approximately 1,880 fires burned 846,411 acres in Oregon. There are approximately 3.5 million acres of “wildland-urban interface” where homes are within reach of a wildfire. Guard against major losses with adequate insurance and take steps to reduce your home’s exposure to wildfires.

Build your home inventory

Follow these easy steps to get started:

  • Step 1: Take photos of each room in your home. Pay close attention to what's on walls, in closets, and don't forget storage spaces.
  • Step 2: Write a brief description of each item. Note the make, model, price, and other details that might help when filing a claim.

Tip: Try to group similar items together when taking pictures.
