The Fourmile Canyon fire just west of Boulder, Colorado has already destroyed 169 homes. After 4 days, it’s only 30% contained. That means there are just under 169 homeowners/families who are concerned about what to do next. It has a lot of people thinking about what they would do if their home was threatened by a wildfire.
The Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association (RMIIA) posted a couple of great articles on what people can do to prepare themselves and their homes in case of a wildfire (or any home-destroying incident). The RMIIA is a non-profit organization to help people better understand auto, homeowners and business insurance. This is a cause I can get behind!
