Statewide Wildfire Insurance Town Hall this Thursday

November 10, 2020

Salem — Oregon Insurance Commissioner Andrew Stolfi will host the second statewide virtual Wildfire Insurance Town Hall on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 11 a.m.

He will be joined by representatives from the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation to answer questions about wildfire insurance, the claims process, and how the division can help Oregonians. A representative from the Federal Emergency Management Association will also be available to answer questions about the need for flood insurance after a wildfire.

Everyone affected by the wildfires are encouraged to tune in to the Zoom livestream. You can also listen to the town hall by calling (253) 215-8782 or (669) 900-6833. Use Meeting ID: 992 4748 7370 and Passcode: 867128.

“Our goal for these wildfire town halls is to address the important insurance information people need right now to move toward recovery,” said Stolfi, who is also the director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services. “Recovery will take time, but we are here to help Oregonians through every phase of their insurance claim.”

Oregonians can submit questions before the town hall. The commissioner and division representatives will answer as many questions as possible during the event.

The town hall will be recorded and captioned in both English and Spanish for people who have difficulty hearing, as well as many of those who are not native English speakers. That recording will be made available as soon as the captioning is complete.

Last month’s town hall can be viewed on the division’s wildfire insurance page. The site, available in English and Spanish, has resources and contact information to help answer many wildfire insurance questions. The division is also prepared to help people in any language they choose. Visit dfr.oregon.gov/help for more information.
