Every year, families and communities are evacuated, homes and buildings are destroyed, and the landscape is decimated. Even for those not directly affected, a wildfire can have deep, lasting effects on a community.

Recently we discussed the importance of defensible space: steps that can be taken beforehand to minimize the risk of damage to your home from a wildfire. Unfortunately, even if a structure survives a wildfire, there are still serious risks to its safety and the safety of those who inhabit it; flooding is just one of those.

Every year, with the onset of summer, wildfires become a major issue here in Colorado and this year has seen the most destructive wildfire in Colorado's history in the Black Forest fire. Many Coloradans live in what is called wildland-urban interface (or WUI) which is an area where structures and other developments meet and mix with wildland areas and vegetative fuels. In areas like these, fire mitigation becomes extremely important, and is required by many counties and cities.

What area do you want to live in?  How much space do you want? Do you want a yard? Are you looking for a house that’s move-in ready or do you want a fixer upper?

As a homeowner, you are responsible for what happens on your property. If someone slips and falls on your property, you could face the ensuing medical bills, as well as court costs and legal fees from a lawsuit. 

Most homeowners have about $100,000 in personal liability coverage per claim as part of their home insurance policies.
