Chubb Key Elements

Before a wildfire occurs

Upon your request, Chubb Wildfire Defense Services will conduct a complimentary, onsite wildfire hazard assessment to recommend ways to improve the chances of your home surviving a wildfire. These may include reducing the fuel around your home that could feed a wildfire, and defensive measures you can take should a wildfire reach your home.

As a wildfire approaches

Chubb may take one or more of the following steps to help you prepare for a potential wildfire, including: deploying certified professional firefighters to your home; helping you prepare for evacuation; arranging for temporary living accommodations if evacuated.

During a wildfire event

Chubb Wildfire Defense Services takes preventative action to defend your home from wildfire, which may include: removing combustible materials from around your home; setting up a perimeter sprinkler system; spraying your home or surrounding property with a fire-preventing, heat-absorbing Class A fire-blocking gel; updating you about the status of your property and any actions taken to protect it.

After the threat has passed

Chubb may continue to help by: escorting you back to your home; cleaning up any equipment left on your property and removing fire-blocking gel from your home with a light washing.
