Lack of Insurance for Fire Departments
There have been a lot of news stories lately about firehouses burning down and the equipment is lost. What amazes me is that most of these fire departments that are quoted in the news stories do not have any insurance on the vehicles or their buildings! I would think that one of the first things a fire department would do is to make sure that their facilities and equipment are insured against fire, theft and flood and earthquake damages.
What costs more, an insurance policy or replacing an entire facilty and it's equipment?
We boldly go where no one else dares...
take care and stay safe
