A Letter to our Firewise Community

Dear Firewise Communities/USA® Program participant,

On behalf of the entire Firewise Program team, we’re excited to announce that the California Insurance Commissioner has approved a set of rate changes submitted by USAA Insurance for their members living in active Firewise Communities/USA® locations throughout California. The homeowner insurance premium discount of 5% will be extended to policy holders living in an active Firewise community.

Below are links to the California Department of Insurance press release, NFPA’s press release, and a post from our Fire Break blog:




We hope you’ll share this news with your community’s residents and consider posting it on your website, in your newsletter and on your social media platforms.

Let us know if we can provide any additional information or answer questions.
