MILE-STONE® celebrates a milestone 21st anniversary
The world was a very different place in 1998. Titanic swept the nation, Google was founded, the first MP3 players burst onto the scene, and Who Wants to be a Millionaire had us all asking, "Is that your final answer?"
While 1998 was a monumental year in terms of pop culture, it was even more monumental for SECURA as our home and auto package, MILE-STONE®, was born.
To understand how far we've come, we'd like to take you back.
In 1900, SECURA was founded on a principle of protecting what matters most. As the years advanced and technology evolved, following the success of the farm offering we became known for, SECURA expanded to offer home and auto, commercial, and specialty policies.
In November 1997, work began on MILE-STONE, the company's new home and auto package policy. This new addition offered policyholders one simple, convenient, and competitively priced package. MILE-STONE featured broad auto, homeowners, and umbrella coverages while the MILE-STONE Gold endorsement offered even broader coverages with increased special limits.
In June 1998, MILE-STONE officially launched in the state of Wisconsin. During its first few months of life, more than 700 policies were issued giving policyholders superior coverage over their home and automobiles.
Today, our MILE-STONE product has protected thousands of homeowners across the Midwest, Colorado, and Arizona.
As homeowners' needs changed, so did MILE-STONE. Recent additions to the package include Pet ProtectorSM, Travel RescuerSM, Roadside RescuerSM, Hobby Farm Coverage, Underground Service Line Coverage, and so much more.

Many livestock owners need to spread manure, even during the winter months. But winter snowfall and spring thaws can create challenges for manure management. When manure isn't effectively absorbed into the soil, it can run off into surface water, ditches, and streams.
Did you know that falls are a leading cause of injury and death in the U.S.?
More than 9 million people are seen by medical providers each year for slip and fall accidents and related injuries, and one-fifth of falls cause serious bodily harm like a broken bone or head injury. Sadly, most are preventable and could have been avoided with proper preparation and training.
During winter weather conditions, the stakes are even higher with wet floors and icy surfaces. Businesses can help prevent slip and falls on two fronts—for associates and customers.
Salt that is spread on winter roads does more than eat away at ice — it eats at your vehicle too.
Snow brings a fresh perspective by dropping a bright, white layer over a house, a neighborhood, a city. But it also brings the inevitable chore: shoveling.
The top New Year's resolution continues to be weight loss. It also is the most commonly broken resolution. Still, many people try to beat the odds by joining a gym or fitness center in early January. While some are daunted by a lack of motivation, others are hindered by injuries and other avoidable aches and pains.
Follow these tips to make your fitness journey rewarding and safe so that your goals of weight loss and health are more attainable.
