In the constantly evolving world of commercial transportation, ambulance operations are seeing even more uncertainty in their fleet insurance options. From increasing rates to less market capacity, volatility in commercial auto, to increasing costs of claims, it is more crucial now than ever to learn what insurance companies look for in a top performing ambulance operation.
As part of the Pinnacle Webinar Series, National Interstate Insurance Company’s Shay McCullough and Katie McCartney will present “Understanding Commercial Auto Insurance for EMS Leaders,” a webinar sponsored by National Interstate Insurance with the assistance of Stryker, Cindy Elbert Insurance Services and Prodigy EMS, on Sept. 22, 2020, at 1 p.m. CDT.
Presented by Fitch & Associates, this webinar will outline characteristics that identify best-in-class ambulance operations, as well as trends in the industry and performance-based solutions that are tailored to individual companies. You will be able to ask questions of an experienced and knowledgeable ambulance underwriter firsthand and learn how to better manage one of your biggest exposures – driving!
“We know insurance is one of the largest expenses ambulance operators face,” McCartney noted. “Over the years, I’ve found that many operators don’t realize what attributes are evaluated during the underwriting process, or understand the solutions that may be available. I encourage you to join our webinar to learn more about commercial auto insurance for EMS leaders.”
Attend the webinar to learn about:
- What is loss frequency? What is loss severity? Why do these matter to my operation?
- How does who I hire impact my operation?
- Best practices of top performing ambulance operators from around the country
- How often should I conduct defensive driver training?
