Volunteer firefighters and emergency service personnel put their lives on the line every day in their mission to serve and protect our families, neighbors and country. It’s their passion and selflessness that inspired our founder, Arthur J. Glatfelter, to create the first-ever specialized coverage for volunteer firefighters fifty years ago. Today, we continue to see it as our purpose to provide meaningful benefits and protections to our nation’s first responders.
