California Plans to Develop New Rules on Home ‘Hardening’
Commissioner Ricardo says the new standards aim to reduce wildfire risk and make insurance more affordable and available in California.
As wildfire seasons only continue to worsen in recent years, California state regulators announced new rules on home ‘hardening,’ creating incentives for retrofitting older homes to make them more resilient to fires.
This initiative is a joint effort by California’s Department of Insurance, Cal Fire, the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, the Public Utilities Commission and the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research.
