Your kitchens, showers, laundry units, mobile offices, etc. are set up to be out in the field at the site. What would happen if one of your units caught fire or was damaged on the way to a fire? Most insurance companies insure your mobile property but they won’t insure your loss of business income when you can’t use it to make money. Your equipment is your tool for making money. No tools no money. In fact not making money using your tools may actually cost you more than the loss of the tool itself. If you’re not insuring this exposure to loss you’re taking a big chance on losing your entire income for the season. You want the right Wildland Firefighting Insurance to keep your mobile units to be protected out in the field!
Why is this important? Great question. Traditional insurance policies write coverage based on a static location, like your business office location. But you’re business is mobile, therefore, your real exposure is not at your office it’s out at the current work site location. Your mobile property exposure should be just that mobile.
Let me give you a quick example. Say you lost one of your mobile kitchens to a fire while it was on a wildfire location. You do not want your Business Interruption or loss of revenue claim to be paid on the static location of your office building. But the static location of your office building is how most insurance companies rate your current loss of business income for this type of exposure. You want the loss of that revenue to be allocated and paid out on the revenue which is being generated by that piece of mobile equipment where it is located today or tomorrow or in your storage unit. Each location brings in a different revenue stream depending on where your mobile equipment is located at the time and how it’s being used. Your insurance coverage should match your business operations, which in your case is mobile. I insure mobile service providers. I understand your real business exposure is out in the field, I’ll make sure your Wildland Firefighter Insurance program covers your mobile business.
