First Responders Coverage Solutions
Recruiting the Best to Keep the Best
VFIS has extended their coverage to include all of your organization’s employees and volunteers. As the lifeblood of your operational team, we know how important it is to keep them safe so they may continue to keep us safe. Check out some of our highlights below.
Accident and Sickness
In 2010, NFPA reported that over 71,875 firefighter injuries occurred in the line of duty. Many of our emergency service members tend to disregard statistics however, thinking that they are either immune to injury, or that Workers Compensation will take care of them and their families. Such thinking is incorrect. Even in the most generous states, there are often gaps in coverage and shortfalls in payout.
The VFIS Accident and Sickness coverage was designed to supplement workers comp benefits and provide coverage to all your members as they engage in the daily their duties.
