SECURA awards donations to local fire departments

Appleton, Wis. (May 30, 2018) – SECURA Insurance presented 27 fire departments with donations earned by its local independent agents in eight states. The donations ranged from $500 to $1,500, with some agencies choosing to split the donation among multiple fire departments. Some agencies choose to match the gifts, increasing the impact of the donations. 

The donations recognize the achievements of independent insurance agents who met or exceeded benchmarks in a sales contest focused on the company’s farm-ag products, which are designed to protect the unique needs of a variety of farms and agricultural businesses.

“Fire departments play such an important part in protecting our policyholders when disaster strikes, especially in rural communities,” said Dave Schlichting, vice president of farm-ag underwriting. “Our independent agents also play a role, and we’re proud to reward our agents’ risk management efforts with local donations in their communities.”
