Fire Season Preparedness: What Wineries Should Do Now - Video

June 23, 2021 Webinar
Wine Industry Education Series

Farella's Quinn Arntsen and MaryJo Lopez with guest speaker Christopher Thompson of Napa Communities Firewise Foundation discuss "Fire Season Preparedness: What Wineries Should Do Now."

California is at the start of another dry year, with increased likelihood that the North Bay will experience another active fire season. Fires are always a risk and they are always unpredictable, spread quickly, and can devastate natural areas and communities. Preparing in advance can help prevent damage, mitigate loss, and reduce stress. Discussion includes:

  • Protecting your physical space
  • Understanding the process for making an insurance claim
  • Developing a plan for working through the smoke
