Americas Leading Insurer of Emergency Organizations

The Leading Insurer Of Emergency Services

Art Glatfelter, founder of VFIS, circa 1989

In 1969, Volunteer Firemen’s Insurance Services, Inc. ® pioneered specialized insurance coverages designed to meet the unique needs of America's emergency service organizations.

Neglected and misunderstood by many insurance companies, the emergency service industry was in need of an innovative approach to insurance products and risk management services. VFIS accepted the challenge and today provides insurance, education, training and consulting to more emergency service organizations in North America than any other provider.

VFIS is a member of Glatfelter Program Managers, one of the largest insurance program managers in the U.S. In addition to VFIS, Glatfelter manages several specialty programs that include municipalities and public entities, water and sewer districts, hospice and home healthcare agencies, senior living and religious organizations. Our unique culture, operating structure and strong market relationships enable us to offer an impressive portfolio of value-added products and services designed to help our clients manage risk.

As part of Glatfelter Insurance Group, our associates are empowered to better serve our emergency service clients and support our insurance products with excellent service, cutting-edge risk management and unquestioned financial strength.
