Genesis Offers New School Violent Acts Policy

March 22, 2007

Following recent violent acts at schools nationwide, Genesis Underwriting Management Co. has developed a first party insurance policy to fund many of the elements of a school’s emergency response plan. Typical covered expenses include post crises management services; post incident crises intervention and containment; media, public relations and communications costs; security and civil authority expenses; air travel and hotel costs for the parents, spouse or child of a victim to the location where the school violent act occurred; as well as a limited amount for property or equipment that relates directly to the security of the school and which may assist in the mitigation or prevention of future acts.

Maximum limits available are $250,000. Minimum deductible is $25,000.

Coverage is available on a non-admitted basis through Risk Placement Services Inc. (RPS). In states where coverage is available, it is provided by Genesis Indemnity Co., rated “A++” by A.M. Best. Coverage is not available in New Hampshire or North Dakota.
