ST. JOSEPH, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, April 13, 2018 / -- Unprecedented demand for Fire Retardant Tarps and Fire-Resistant Coverings has Tarps Now®, the nation’s largest supplier for stock and custom tarps, coverings and industrial fabrics, dramatically increasing its commitment to meeting the needs of municipal, state and federal governmental agencies, as well as businesses and individual homeowners.

To quantify the impacts, a well-known national insurance company has estimated it will incur $100 million of catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance recoverable and reinstatement premiums, in the first quarter of 2018 alone, largely arising from the California wildfires and related events. This estimate follows a prior original loss estimate for California’s fourth quarter wildfires which were based on the best available information at the time, including modeled data, preliminary client discussions and industry loss estimates, all of which ranged from $8 billion to $10 billion in projected losses.

A Tarps Now® spokesperson stated, “As a result of the increasing levels of loss being experienced in the Western States following wildfires, Fire Retardant Tarps and Flame-Resistant Fabrics are now being aggressively stockpiled by governmental agencies, businesses and homeowners.
