With our corporate headquarters in Torrance, California, and offices in Sacramento, for the forensic engineers at Guardian Group, Inc., these two recent wildfires have really hit home. Thankfully, the Woolsey Fire was contained last week, but after three casualties. The Camp Fire up north in Butte County now also has been fully contained, but only after claiming a harrowing 88 lives, and with 203 still missing. Some estimates state that, collectively, over 19,000 structures have been damaged or completely destroyed.
It’s not just residential and commercial property that needs repair and re-build after such devastation; it’s lives and businesses, too, that must be rebuilt. Calls from your insureds require rapid dispatch and the kind of reliable investigation that leads to rapid resolution.
