Wildfire Risks – We Aren’t Immune
Western and mountain regions of the US are seeing steep increases in homeowner’s insurance premiums as a result of recent wildfires. As a preventative measure some companies are also dropping customers in fire prone areas and those too close to brush and trees.
While wildfires are not a big problem in St. Charles and St. Louis Counties, there are some cases each year. Many of these cases start with the burning of leaves, boxes or other refuse. Keep you and your neighbor’s home safe this fall by following local fire regulations and paying close attention to weather conditions.
