Wildfire in the Age of the Gigafire: Measuring and Mitigating a Growing Risk
On demand webinar
The 2020 wildfire season brought record-breaking fire events to the western United States. More than 4 million acres burned in California alone, a historic record, and multiple nearby states saw their largest fires ever. In an already unprecedented year, this fire season served as a potent reminder of a threat that’s growing with the advance of climate change and human encroachment on wildlands. With continual research and innovation to monitor and measure wildfire exposure, Verisk provides insurers with critical insights to better confront this complex risk.
In this webinar, we review the 2020 wildfire season, including the first “gigafire.” We also share our latest insights on wildfire mitigation and the role of legislation.
