Because of the risks involved, firefighting is a dangerous profession that necessitates adequate health insurance policies. Firefighters on the front lines of a fire are exposed to a slew of chemicals and carcinogens. They are putting their own lives in danger to protect others and their belongings.
Though firefighters are provided with life insurance policies as part of their job, it may not be sufficient to cover their needs.
If you are a volunteer firefighter or work in emergency services, you may be eligible for a variety of benefits. Many states provide generous Worker’s Compensation benefits in the event of an accident, but waiting periods can be inconvenient.
The International Association of Fire Fighters is an excellent resource for firefighters seeking information on mortgage loans, auto insurance, and health and life benefits (IAFF). They not only have partnerships with mortgage lenders, but they also have health care plans for retired firefighters. The IAFF offers information on long-term car insurance, indemnity dental services, and small business health plans.
Some insurance companies provide discounts to firefighters, including accidental death and line-of-duty death benefits. Investigate local associations in your state for more information. Check with an insurance agent who specializes in special rates for emergency services careers if you are a firefighter or EMT.
