Fireman's Fund Teams up with Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality to Offer Comprehensive Campground Coverages.

Campground Owners Get Help Managing Their Unique Risks

NOVATO, Calif. -- In an effort to offer campground owners the protection they need, Fireman's Fund Insurance Company has teamed with Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality Insurance to offer a comprehensive program of risk management and coverages.

According to the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, total campground and RV bookings were up 23 percent from January to May 2008 versus the same period last year. Moreover, campgrounds have expanded services including boat and bicycle rentals, general stores, concession stands, gas sales, playgrounds, RV storage, camping cabins, lodges, cottage rentals, self service laundries and restrooms. Owners often have multiple locations in more than one state. As a result, campgrounds present a variety of insurance needs.

"We are pleased to work with Leavitt Recreation to provide specialized coverage for campgrounds," said Mike Halvey, vice president of commercial insurance programs for Fireman's Fund. "Our combined experience and understanding of the recreation and hospitality industry makes it a logical partnership."

Campground coverages include:

* Property coverage for buildings, restrooms, community centers, out buildings, camping cabins, laundry facilities, etc.

* General Liability coverage in case of bodily injury or property damage.

* Inland Marine coverage for equipment such as tractors, maintenance equipment, etc.

* Auto coverage for the vehicles owned by the campground owners.

"I have been involved with insuring RV parks and campgrounds for over 20 years," said Jimmy Tumblin, Vice President of Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality Insurance. "Fireman's Fund, The Leavitt Group and Leavitt Recreation and Hospitality Insurance Agency are an experienced group of people working to insure and protect campgrounds and I am proud to be a member of this team."
