Our Philosophy

For more than 40 years, VFIS has forged a partnership with fire and emergency medical service leaders that allows for the continuing development of policy and program enhancements, specialized education and consulting for management needs.

VFIS is committed to protecting the resources of emergency service organizations and promoting the health and interest of its members. Wherever and whenever the welfare of our clients is at stake, VFIS is there to lead or support their efforts with a level of dedication no imitator can duplicate.

Our History

VFIS drafted the first specialized insurance policy in 1969 to meet the unique needs of America's emergency service organizations. From the very beginning, VFIS has had a strong commitment to education, training and consulting as part of our efforts to help the emergency service community, and we continue to expand these efforts.

Since 1980, we have handled nearly 450,000 claims for emergency service organizations, and the number grows each day. With that, more than 10,000 emergency service organizations have experienced little or no change in pricing at their renewal for the past 5 years and over 96  percent of VFIS customers have stayed with us for the past 10 years.
