16 Jul Who Protects Those Who Protect Us From Fire?
Insurance for Installation and Service Contractors – Fire Alarm Systems
Fact is, fire suppression and alarm systems save lives. Yet all too often, we see homes and properties go unprotected. Consider these numbers: sprinklers were installed in only 10% of reported structure fires in 2010-2014. In 2009-2013, smoke alarms sounded in more than half (53%) of the home fires reported to U.S. fire departments.* Undoubtedly, fire suppression and alarm systems are critical to saving lives and property — and needed more than ever.
But who protects your fire suppression and alarm system business and service contractors? If a customer experiences a loss — or worse — they will see you in court, seeking to recoup that loss, regardless of whether or not your installation was faulty. What if your work — or your employee’s — causes someone to get hurt or causes property damage? Or someone slips and falls on your property? What if your installation is in fact, faulty? And what about health hazards from the exposure of mold and fungus?

Your best course of action is specialty liability insurance to cover the cost of your legal defense and any judgment awarded for claims against you.
