General Liability Insurance for Fire Suppression Contractors and Wildland Fire Fighting

General Liability Insurance for Associations from Forest Specialty

Wildland fire has historically played a crucial part in helping foster the health of fire-adapted ecosystems across the U.S. Trends towards outright fire suppression have resulted in an imbalance in these habitats, and this imbalance has increased the risk of extreme, harmful wildfires. Now, prescribed fire is becoming a key tool in the effort to rejuvenate habitat and mitigate the damage to property and wildland from natural occurring wildfire. Cost-effective, efficient, and powerful, prescribed fire and other controlled burn activities are critical to reducing the severity of future wildfires by reducing the available fuel load. Controlled burns also enrich the lands on which they’re conducted by reducing pest populations and releasing nutrients tied up in accumulated litter back to the soil, resulting in healthier, more robust land.

Although wildland fire fighting is a critical part of maintaining the health and safety of wildlife and people alike, the fire suppression and controlled burn industry faces numerous significant challenges and difficulties. At Forest Specialty, we’ve spent the past 15 years dedicating ourselves to providing responsible fire suppression contractors with high-quality prescribed fire insurance to help you thrive in this challenging industry. Your potential clients will want—or even require—you to have prescribed fire insurance before you operate on their property to ensure that you’re protected from property damage and injury claims that result from escaped fire and smoke. With controlled burn insurance for prescribed fire and fire suppression contractors from Forest Specialty, you’ll be ready to take on even the most complex contracts.
