ISO, a Verisk (Nasdaq:VRSK) business and leading provider of advanced tools and analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry, and Intterra, a leading provider of software for fire departments across the United States, are partnering with the Western Fire Chiefs Association (WFCA) to explore new ways of analyzing and understanding wildfire risk.
The partnership brings together experts in insurance, technology, and fire protection. Intterra has worked with the WFCA for several years to develop the Fire Data Lab, a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the use of data-driven decision making in the fire service. The addition of ISO will bring robust insurance data and risk analytics to the alliance to help generate new insights.
"The growth of wildfires is constantly creating new challenges for those on the front lines working to protect people and property," said Jeff Johnson, CEO of the WFCA. "With Intterra and ISO, we'll look to harness the power of fire analytics, environmental data, and insurance innovation to gain new perspectives on how to mitigate and respond to these complex natural disasters."
