Smart Home America and Farmers Insurance have partnered for over seven years to promote disaster-resilience. In the wake of a historic year for disasters, this renewed partnership takes on even more urgency.
Farmers has been a longtime supporter of our education and outreach work to strengthen communities. This continued partnership will allow us to teach more home and business owners about the benefits of building better and using FORTIFIED standards.
Farmers Insurance Group is a strong advocate for disaster resilience and is a member company of the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS). FORTIFIED Home™ construction was created by IBHS and has increased the performance and durability of over 22,000 homes nationally.
The grant funding from Farmers will allow Smart Home America to further support continuing education courses and dynamic volunteer opportunities with our non-profit construction partners, such as SBP and Habitat for Humanity. These trainings will help attendees learn how mitigation can be implemented, and better understand how it benefits communities and home and business owners.
