Wildfires have increased dramatically during the past decade. Loss exposure will continue to increase as the wildland-urban interface (WUI) is further developed and building occurs in areas of high hazard.

With deeper understanding of these effects, you can underwrite and manage your wildfire exposure with greater insight.
