Sunrise Beach has been designated a Firewise Community. This was made possible through the efforts of the Texas Forest Service and the Volunteer Fire Department. This designation makes it possible for some homeowners to receive a discount on their homeowner’s insurance.

You can submit the below certificate to your insurance company to provide proof that you live in a Firewise Community. For example, USAA is one such insurer that provides discounts. Please download a copy of the certificate for your records.

Efforts will continue throughout 2024 to educate those that live in our Wildland Urban Interface on how to provide a protective space around homes, and to encourage folks to clear brush and flammable debris from around their homes making them safer from potential fires.
