SAFER FROM WILDFIRES - CDI

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE #76983053


location_on A
  • CDI Headquarters: Sacramento Office
    Sacramento, Sacramento

Safer from Wildfires is an interagency partnership between Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara and the emergency response and readiness agencies in Governor Gavin Newsom’s administration to protect lives, homes, and businesses by reducing wildfire risk.

The program's “ground up” approach for wildfire resilience has three layers of protection — for the structure, the immediate surroundings, and the community — to prevent wildfire from catching and spreading to other homes and businesses in the neighborhood.
