A survey following the Fourmile Canyon Fire found that over 60 percent of people who lost their homes were under-insured by an average amount of over $160,000. Many homeowners assume their insurance coverage will allow them to rebuild if their home is destroyed by a wildfire. Under-insurance is a common problem especially as fires in the wildland-urban interface become more prevalent and larger in size. This video contains vital information for homeowners so they can properly insure their home against wildfire.
Foothills United Way, Boulder County and United Policy Holders have teamed up to help Boulder County residents assure they are adequately insured. If you would like to have an insurance preparedness presentation in your community, or would like more resources regarding adequately insuring your mountain home, please contact Amy Hardy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
