Special Risk Insurance, Inc. is independently owned and operated, a nationally recognized insurer of Emergency Service Organizations and the Regional Director for Volunteer Firemen’s Insurance Services in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Neglected and misunderstood by many insurance companies, the emergency service industry was in need of an innovative approach to insurance products and risk management services. VFIS accepted the challenge and today provides insurance, education, training and consulting to more than 15,000 emergency service clients in 49 states and Canada.

For more than 30 years, VFIS has forged a partnership with fire and emergency medical service leaders that allows for the continuing development of policy and program enhancements, specialized education, and consulting for management needs. VFIS is committed to protecting the resources of emergency service organizations and promoting the health and interest of its members. Wherever and whenever the welfare of our clients is at stake, VFIS is there to lead or support their efforts with a level of dedication no imitator can duplicate.


Special Risk Insurance was originally founded in 1981, by then President - Lynda Vince & is sustained today by current President David Stogner
