It’s ok, it’s never caught fire ...

It has been brought to our attention that some members have insurance policies that do not include any use of fire anywhere on their site.  I strongly recommend that you check yours.

For instance:

  • Camp Fires
  • Lantern Parades
  • Torch Light Processions
  • Fireworks
  • Chinese Lanterns (which you really should not be using)
  • Fire eaters and breathers in street performance
  • Barbeques

And there may be more

Inclusion of fire in your policy can be achieved but at a premium cost.  Here at AFO we are currently researching through companies and users to achieve best recommended underwriter.

Check yours now and watch this space for more information.
