Identified resources in the Peak to Peak corridor
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.
