Assemblymember Irwin to Host Wildfire & Disaster Insurance Online Town Hall

The office of Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin—who represents AD 42, which includes Pacific Palisades—will host a Wildfire & Disaster Insurance Online Town Hall on Thursday, April 4, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The town hall is being cohosted by Irwin, Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara and Las Virgenes-Malibu Council of Governments.

“Wildfire does not respect jurisdictional boundaries,” read a flyer for the town hall. “Hear from a panel of experts from across the region on state and local wildfire response efforts.”

Special guests slated to take part in the town hall include Calabasas Mayor Alicia Weintraub, Agoura Hills Mayor Pro Tem Penny Sylvester, California Department of Insurance and United Policy Holders.

The town hall comes on the heels of news that State Farm General Insurance Company would “non-renew” approximately 30,000 homeowners, rental dwelling and other property insurance policies (residential association and business owners) across California, including in the Palisades. The non-renewals will occur on a rolling basis, State Farm said in a statement, beginning July 3.

“We will notify customers impacted by this decision in advance of their policy expiration to provide information on other coverage options,” State Farm wrote.

Irwin’s website includes resources and tips for residents who have received non-renewal notices from homeowner insurance companies.
