New VFIS Website Offers 200+ Training and Risk Control Tools to Emergency Service Organizations

YORK, Pa. –  Jan. 18, 2016 – The VFIS website now makes it easier for emergency service organizations (ESO) to access more than 200 safety resources, communiques, videos and training tools.  As the leading insurance and education provider to ESOs in the U.S., VFIS redesigned the site with an easy to navigate interface, intuitive search function and responsive viewing across all browsers and devices. Visitors are encouraged to download materials, utilize the self-assessments within their own department and have thoughtful discussions with their personnel after viewing Tailboard Safety videos.

VFIS President Troy Markel said, “not only has VFIS been a pioneer of insurance for emergency service organizations, we’ve also had an unwavering focus on education, training and risk control. We’ve trained over 175,000 ESO members in the past decade and have users accessing VFIS University courses daily. It was only logical to continue providing these materials online.” 

Visitors can find updated information about VFIS insurance products and coverages, applications, agent and broker locations, claims handling, VFIS University and on-site training courses on the site as well. There is also specialized information for agents and brokers looking to partner with VFIS.
