Fire season used to be during the summer months, but this is no longer the case. Fire season is now all year long.
Here are some recent stats about fires in 2010:
- Fire departments responded to over 1.3 Million fires. The cause of these fires ranged anywhere from brush fires to electrical fires.
- A fire department responded to a residential fire every 82 seconds.
- A fire department responded to a building fire every 65 seconds.
There are many ways we can prevent fires from happening. Cooking fires are a leading cause of home fires so it’s important to keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen at all times. With the holidays just around the corner, remember to put out candles, unplug your Christmas tree and make sure portable heaters are only being used when you are around.
Another major issue throughout California is brush fires or California wildfires. Because of the state’s topography, California residents living in high brush areas or wild fire zones are especially aware of the risk if their homes are within close proximity to brush.
Einhorn Insurance insures homes and properties in high brush zones. Whether you are in escrow or you’ve been with the same carrier for years, insurance companies may now see your home as a high fire risk.
Most insurance companies will not insure your home if you are within 2500 feet to brush, but in most cases, we can insure homes/properties within 100 feet to brush.
Einhorn Insurance offers great rates on home insurance in high brush areas, but more importantly, we provide you with excellent coverage.
If you are in need of home insurance in a wild fire area or home insurance in a high brush zone, we are happy to answer your questions. Our staff is very familiar with escrow closings as we are also licensed realtors. We have access to the MLS (multiple listing service) throughout California and can get all the details about your property immediately. This is especially important when you are under the gun to close escrow.
