An additional 27 million properties are being designated as Low or Moderate Risk, with an estimated RCV of $6.7 trillion.

At the state level, California and Texas rank first and second for the total number of homes in the Extreme wildfire risk category, with 645,445 properties at risk in California and 532,317 in Texas. In comparison, Colorado ranked third with 195,601 properties in these risk categories.
