On an episode of the Top of Mind podcast last year, RedZone’s Founder and CEO Clark Woodward and host Mike Simonsen discussed how wildfire and other climate risks are creating new challenges for the housing market. As a firefighter, data scientist, and an entrepreneur, Clark was able to share his expertise and provide a unique perspective on the issue. Specifically, the podcast explores the changing landscape for disaster insurance and shares insight into how homeowners should think about climate risk in the coming decades. In the 52 minute video, Clark offers hope for the future of the housing market through emerging data that helps validate what makes a home survive, policy innovations like those that provide financial assistance to help homeowners make their homes more fire safe, and new technology that helps analyze risk and quickly provide resources for mitigation.
