Wildfire Defense

  • Stay ahead of danger and help protect your home from wildfire.

You know the threat of wildfire is real. But you can take steps to prepare for the risk.

Chubb can help protect your family, home, and property with proven wildfire management services that have saved our policyholders millions in property damage - and can help you minimize threats in the event of a wildfire. 

Service Highlights

Chubb has partnered with Wildfire Defense Systems, Inc. (WDS), a leading wildfire management organization, to bring you valuable protection before, during, and after a wildfire. WDS is supervised by wildfire professionals with up to 35 years of experience.

In select areas, Chubb can help protect your property from wildfire with complimentary services, including:

  • Before wildfire season: Onsite wildfire hazard assessment to recommend ways to improve the chances of your home surviving (available upon request).
  • As your home is threatened: Working with you to take preventative actions to defend your home. If a wildfire is threatening your area, we may deploy certified fire professionals to your home.
  • After the threat has passed: Return combustible material and other items that may have temporarily relocated, as well as removing any fire-blocking gel that may have been applied home. During this time, WDS would be available to answer any questions you may have around our response.  And, of course, we can help you process a claim if you home sustained any damage.
