Fire Districts have complex needs and limited resources.

Agencies are under increased pressure to seek new ways to achieve greater efficiency and accountability while also reducing costs and improving operating performance. They are reliant now - more than ever - to have a partner equally invested in minimizing risk, controlling expenses and navigating the complexities in order to achieve their goals.

Do you have questions about your organization’s insurance?

We realize you have countless responsibilities, first and foremost you must do what’s best for your personnel and the community you serve while protecting the District financially. Let’s face it, in the current environment, there is a lot of confusion with regard to risk.

With over 300 Emergency Service clients, Horton understands that fire chiefs, trustees and other leaders of these organizations have a challenging role. Our team of knowledgeable, experienced professionals stay ahead of the market trends, legislative changes, and offer strategies to mitigate unnecessary expenses that affect the cost of your insurance.

Horton strives to offer more than insurance. We are dedicated to raising the performance of our clients and preparing them for risks critical to their future - most often these risks are uninsurable. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in developing a risk management program to meet your specific needs.
