NZART Public Liability and Fire Fighting Insurance: what are your branch requirements?
Council has obtained cover for headquarters and the above from a new broker with a worthwhile reduction in the premium. We have five million dollars cover for public liability and two million for forest fire fighting. The forest fire cover is probably excessive and needs to be reviewed once we hear from branches that require this cover (usually because of agreements with site owners for repeater access).
There are two potential things that a branch could be liable for if a fire were to be started as a result of amateur activities: the first is for damage to property including a forest plantation. This is covered by the public liability policy not the forest fire cover. The other liability is the cost of fighting the fire. This is covered by the forest fire cover.
We have often heard ‘we need two million dollars for forest fire cover’. Council needs clarification as to what the break down is between the two potential liabilities mentioned above, for your branch. As NZART is providing cover for these activities and it is important that realistic cover is arranged.
It is extremely unlikely for the cost of fire fighting to reach two million dollars, however the resulting damage (public liability) claim could possibly reach this level. We need branches to let us know what the breakdown of their requirements are. If we can reduce the forest fire cover we will save several hundred dollars p.a. in premiums. Being over insured is a great way to lose money year after year! Please email email@example.com your insurance preferences Please note that this cover is only for NZART members.
