Fire Insurance

California has ordered insurance companies to stop dropping customers who live in areas affected by recent wildfires. The order from Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara will only last for one year. And it only covers people who live within the perimeter of one of 16 different wildfires that raged across the state in October. But it marks the first time the state has used a new law designed to give homeowners more time to find coverage as the growing threat of wildfires makes insuring their properties more expensive.

Emergency Equipment Funding

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has awarded the city of Santa Rosa more than $4.4 million in grants to help the city rebuild and fortify its infrastructure following the 2017 wildfires. Congressman Mike Thompson announced the grants in a news release yesterday. A $3.36 million grant will replace 19 stationary generators at water and wastewater facilities and a $1.06 million grant will be used to install back up battery systems for traffic signal controllers at 175 locations.
