Workers Comp Insurance For Firefighters
58,250 firefighter injuries occurred in the line of duty in 2018 alone. There are few occupations that have the same level of potential risk as firefighting – and longer shifts, personnel shortages, high stress and chronic exhaustion have become more widespread in the industry. Having proudly served in firefighter roles ourselves, the dedicated professionals of 7710 Insurance recognized the need for a specialized workers’ compensation program designed specifically for first responders that would proactively prevent injuries, as well as expertly manage treatment and claims if they do occur.
Work Comp Insurance Created By Firefighters and Insurance Professionals
Our staff has more than a century of collective experience in both workers’ comp and first responder arenas and we know how important it is for a fire department to secure and maintain a quality workers’ compensation insurance program with a competitive premium. Because of our vast experience with the job duties and equipment used by firefighters, we are able to offer our insureds a tailor fit, single-source workers comp program supported by adept claims management and unmatched in-house safety and risk control programs.
Specialized Firefighter Workers’ Comp Risk Control and Cost Containment Strategies
7710 Insurance helps fire departments create and maintain a safety-first culture centered on risk control, which can have a dramatic impact on lowering the incidence of work-related injury claims, as well as streamlining treatment times, speeding return-to-work and optimizing claims management – all of which reduce overall costs and increase productivity.
Through specialized fitness instruction and the hands-on safety and risk management strategy of our innovative SHIELD program (Safety and Health Initiative for Evaluating Loss Defense), our insureds are empowered to proactively prevent work-related injuries and losses through a series of assessments and on-going best practices education. SHIELD plays a vital role in minimizing or preventing claims from occurring in the first place and is provided at no additional cost with every firefighter workers’ compensation policy that we issue.
