FORTIFIED for Safer Living® Standards Guide
Thank you for your interest in the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety’s FORTIFIED for Safer Living® homebuilding program. The FORTIFIED program specifies construction, design, and landscaping guidelines to increase a new home’s resistance to natural, catastrophe-level perils most likely to occur in the area where the structure is located. In addition, FORTIFIED criteria and recommendations exist for reducing damage caused by non-catastrophe-level perils, such as fire inside the home, burglary, water loss, and electrical surge.
