Broker Advantages for Specializing in Emergency Service Organizations

ADVANTAGES

FOR SPECIALIZING IN EMERGENCY SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS

Firefighters and EMTs are the backbone of each community. There are an estimated 29,727 fire departments and 21,283 EMS agencies in the U.S. – they’re in your neighborhood and you might already even know one.
Depending on your location, emergency service organizations (ESOs) have varying risk-types that can round an account with several lines of business and increase your revenue. For example, VFIS has Property & Casualty, Accident & Sickness, Critical Illness, Group Term Life and LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) coverages.
Does your agency sell both personal and commercial lines? Becoming an agent to an ESO provides you with 20+ members (and 20+ opportunities) to grow your book.

WHO WE ARE

ABOUT VFIS, GLATFELTER COMMERCIAL AMBULANCE + GLATFELTER SPECIALTY BENEFITS

VFIS is the largest provider of insurance, education and consulting services to emergency service organizations such as fire departments, ambulance, rescue squads and 911 centers. In 1969, we pioneered the first-ever tailored insurance package for emergency service organizations and today we continue to be a leader in the industry. We are currently staffed with many active and past first responders who have a combined 760+ years of emergency service experience, so we truly understand the needs of our clients as we serve alongside them every day.

Over the past three years, VFIS accounts have averaged above a 97% retention rate and for the past five years, our country-wide renewal rate targets have averaged less than 1.2%. We’ll serve your clients to the best of our abilities and provide rate-stability, so you can help become a trusted resource and retain clients.

Our Glatfelter Specialty Benefits program fills the gaps that traditional policies may have, and can help agents round their ESO accounts. Supplying solutions to the issues that matter to first responders, like cancer, critical illness, recruitment and retention, we know our clients pain points and have created custom coverages to meet their needs.

In select states, we also serve commercial emergency medical ambulance operations, commercial non-emergency medical ambulance operations and paratransit/non-medical transport operations through our Glatfelter Commercial Ambulance program.
