In 2003, AWIB undertook an extensive study of the fire protection industry following the liability crisis that hit Australia at the time. We discovered that many organisations could not afford the level of insurance required to continue to safely operate their business.
Our analysis also revealed that the fire protection industry was widely misunderstood by the insurance industry. As a result we designed a specialist Public & Products Liability & Professional Indemnity insurance policy with wider policy benefits and lower insurance premiums.
The fire protection industry provides an essential service that protects property, safeguards the environment and saves lives. It’s a privilege to be able to support such a vital industry.
