NFH 2020 Virtual Conference

Thanks to all our attendees!

If you didn't make it to the virtual conference, we're sorry we missed you. Presentations and webinars from the conference are coming to this site soon!



Cabin Insurance Program Notice

Please be aware that a portion of cabin insurance customers are experiencing non-renewal of policies. Most policies obtained through this program are unaffected.

A key carrier is pulling back due to economic conditions and losses unrelated to our program. While insurance non-renewal has become a more common experience for cabin owners, we want to reassure our members that Assurance Risk Managers (ARM) is working to resolve this situation. ARM continues to offer cabin insurance through other carriers, however those who apply may see fewer (or higher) quotes due to reduced options. ARM is also actively seeking a replacement carrier.
Please contact ARM directly at (888) 454-9562 if you have further questions regarding your policy. Keep in mind this program is designed to provide options for those struggling to find insurance. NFH and our partners are committed to this goal.

National Forest Closures
throughout California:

If you have a cabin in California, please read the latest notice from the USFS in region 5 regarding these forest closures.

The Forest Service is re-assessing these conditions and closures daily. This closure has been extended through September 21, 2020.


Fire Information

NOTE: NFH is monitoring and aware of multiple fires- many still active-that have impacted cabin tracts. While most information is as yet unconfirmed, we have learned of cabin losses in at least two states: California and Oregon.

Our thoughts are with all cabin owners affected or awaiting news; please reach out if we can be of service. 

Check your National Forest web page and/or Facebook page for updates. Be patient, as it can take some time to get in and assess.


See Map of Active Fires

To view active fires, see Inciweb,the Incident Information System website.


Some information on Inciweb can be up to 24 hours behind, so you may wish to check multiple sources.

Impaired Cabin Access?
Asking for Temporary Fee Adjustment

Most cabins have been accessible during the pandemic. However, if your forest has limited access to cabins for a significant length of time, or your access was restricted due to state and local mandates, you may have the option of requesting a fee adjustment.

We're happy to hear many are enjoying cabin time this summer, but if you were prevented from use of your cabin, please review our Ask the Community post and its attached Sample Letter document for more information.
