What Types of Insurance Do Fire Alarm and Sprinkler Companies Need? 

There are a number of different types of insurance coverage that every fire alarm and/or sprinkler company ought to strongly consider, including without limitation:

Workers’ Compensation

This coverage helps to cover the cost of medical expenses and lost wages for employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses.  If your company has employees, Workers’ Compensation may be legally required.

General Liability

This coverage protects your business against third-party claims of bodily injury, property damage, and even reputational harm like false advertising or slander. 

Commercial Auto

Commercial auto insurance covers the vehicles that your company uses in the course of its business, such as delivery trucks, service vans and the like.

Commercial Property

Safeguards your warehouse, workshop, or other facilities, along with the specialized tools and equipment stored inside.

Business Income Coverage

Also known as ‘Business Income and Extra Expense insurance’ (BIEE), this option reimburses for certain expenses you when your business is forced to temporarily shut down due to a covered loss. 

Contractor Equipment Coverage

This policy provides funds for stolen, missing, or damaged equipment and can even cover debris removal or cleanup after an accident.

Product Liability Insurance

If your company manufactures fire alarms, sprinklers or related products, this insurance can cover claims related to defects that cause injury or property damage.

Inland Marine Insurance

Covers equipment and materials that are transported over land, such as to and from the job sites. 

Professional Liability/Errors & Omissions

Protects against claims of professional negligence or errors that result in financial loss to a client. 

Cyber Liability Insurance

Helps minimize damage after a data breach or cyber-attack. This has become increasingly important as businesses become more reliant on technology.

Business Owner’s Policy (“BOP”)

A BOP bundles general liability and commercial property insurance together into one policy.  BOPs are often modifiable, as customers usually have the option of adding on additional types of coverage (including some of those mentioned above).

Commercial Umbrella

Adds another layer of liability protection after the limits of your other liability policies have been reached.
