The sequence that led to smoke — California wildfires explained

Athenium Analytics is partnering with Demotech to deliver a free webinar on December 11, 2018 that will help insurance carriers better understand the science behind the recent wildfires in California. If you work in insurance claims, underwriting or risk management—or have portfolio exposure in fire-prone areas—this webinar will provide information about the risk factors behind catastrophic wildfires like the Camp and Woolsey fires in California.

The team at Demotech has graciously offered to host an online video webinar with members from the Athenium Analytics meteorology and product teams. The goal is to not only help viewers understand wildfire risk factors, but also see new tools that can help insurance carriers minimize exposure to future wildfire events. Leigh Munchak, Vice President of Meteorology at Athenium Analytics, will share photos, discuss our proprietary risk scoring models, and explain new Wildfire analysis features available in our Gauge & Dexter platforms.

Even if you’re not directly involved with writing business in California, this webinar is a great chance to better understand the most destructive wildfires in state history. Discover how climate and weather conditions impact the spread of fires, and get a peek at new tools to help you mitigate future fire-related risks in your own area.

Webinar date: Tuesday, December 11
Webinar time: 2:00 PM Eastern (11:00 AM Pacific)
