Oregon’s Division of Financial Regulation (DFR) Seeking Information Regarding Prescribed Fire Coverage

 

Oregon’s Division of Financial Regulation (DFR) is seeking information regarding prescribed fire coverage. This data call is focused on identifying companies that offer this coverage in the state of Oregon, as well as companies offering this coverage in any other state.

For the purpose of this data call, prescribed fire coverage is defined as coverage for liability caused by or resulting from prescribed fires.
