Wildfire Disclosure Report - FortressFire

As wildfires continue to pose an increasing threat to California homes and communities, understanding and managing wildfire risk have become increasingly challenging in real estate transactions.

The CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® has partnered with FortressFire to provide Wildfire Disclosure Reports (WFDRs) in California that document the specific vulnerabilities of a home and provide a roadmap for how to protect and insure it, providing more informed and effective real estate transactions.

The FortressFire WFDR is more than a list of best practices and general regulatory requirements. The WFDR uses a patent-pending physics-based model to identify the specific vulnerabilities of a home, the specific fuels that will cause the house to burn, along with cost estimates to eliminate those vulnerabilities and greatly reduce the risk of destruction in the event of wildfire.  These insights and recommended actions put homeowners on the path to insurability and more affordable rates.

The WFDR includes:

  • Fuel Load Analysis: Assessing the property's vegetation density to understand fire fuel potential.
  • Topographical Insights: Understanding how the terrain may influence fire behavior and spread.
  • Proximity to Fire-Prone Areas: Identifying potential risks based on the property's location.
  • Compliance with State Regulations: Documenting the status for AB 38 inspections and insurance coverage options.
  • Mitigation Recommendations and Costs: Offering personalized strategies to mitigate vulnerabilities and enhance insurability.


Armed with this comprehensive data-driven report, real estate professionals and homeowners can make well-informed decisions regarding property transactions, compliance with regulations, and securing insurance coverage.




For more information on fire insurance and how you can further help your clients, please visit our C.A.R. Fire Insurance resource page.

The Wildfire Disclosure Report may be ordered from any of the following Authorized Distributors (more coming soon). The WFDR may be ordered independently or as an add-on to the NHD Report:
