Marsh & McLennan: Calif. Wildfires - Quick List of Resources

Print Friendly and PDF

California is suffering unprecedented devastation as wildfires spread through both rural and urban communities. Many of our colleagues, clients and business partners in the affected regions are facing evacuations, fear of the unknown and in some cases, loss of property.  In the midst of a crisis, it can be hard to know what to do or how to help. We put together a quick list of resources, depending on individual needs.

For up to the minute updates on wildfire progression and evacuation areas, visit Cal Fire’s Incident Information page: http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents

If you are a homeowner and have a home that was lost or damaged as a result of the fire, contact your broker right away.

If you are a business owner and have suffered a loss related to your business, once you and your employees are safe, contact your broker right away.

If you are not currently in an area threatened by fire and are concerned about precautions you can take to protect your own home or business, contact your broker to discuss the best plans and policies to have in place.
