RedZone is excited to announce we’ve integrated a new product into our RZRisk offerings to help our partners take advantage of safer wildfire communities. Local government and fire departments often work together to help communities mitigate risk. As mentioned in our blog from earlier this year, great examples of these are Fire Risk Reduction Communities (FRRC) Communities. FRRC’s are communities specifically in California and homeowners who are a part of them can be eligible for a break on their homeowner’s insurance. Let’s take a look!

Fire Risk Reduction Communities

The California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection developed the FRRC List. The board maintains the list every two years and eligible agencies and governments must reapply during that time.

Fire departments are major advocates for community risk reduction programs. While fire prevention, inspections, and public education remain integral parts of fire department activities, the FRRC notion takes a more comprehensive approach to improve civilian and firefighter safety. The following are just a handful of programs that can be associated with the program: smoke alarm installation, fall prevention, water safety, community paramedicine, and emergency preparedness.

How can RedZone help?

RedZone is here to help insurers adhere to the new guidelines that started in March. Our RZRisk product has a new capability to identify policies inside these communities. This enables insurers to see specific changes needed to comply with the regulation. But also, take a look at their aggregated impacted business. RedZone takes this a step further by offering a platform to help underwriting and/or mitigation programs track homeowners’ efforts. Ultimately – rewarding communities that are helping to mitigate wildfire threats! Contact for more information.
