Most homeowners have insurance. Your mortgage lender likely requires it. Are you sure you have enough coverage though? Be sure to review your home policy on an annual basis to make sure you're sufficiently covered after a natural disaster. Made by FEMA Region 10 with information from Ready.gov and USFA.FEMA.gov. Comments can be directed to FEMA-R10-NewsDesk@fema.dhs.gov. Umbrella icon created by Delwar Houssain from Noun Project.

Here are three ways you can ready yourself for wildfires:

1. Have a communication plan for how you will get information and stay in touch with loved ones.

2. Create a 30-foot zone of defensible space around your home.

3. Determine if you have sufficient insurance coverage to protect your property.
