Ready to take the Wildfire Prepared Home™ free online assessment?
Let’s go over a few things before you get started.
While this assessment is free, there will be a $125 fee required upon submission of your designation application. The purpose of this assessment is to ensure you have first reviewed the Homeowner Guide
and taken the steps necessary for your home to meet all the requirements
of this program before you pay the application fee for the inspection.
First, you will take the assessment for Wildfire Prepared Home and enter your email address to view your results. Next, we’ll ask a few additional questions to see if you qualify for the higher-level designation, Wildfire Prepared Home Plus.
Based on your answers, we will determine if you are ready to apply for a designation.
