To further expand the client base of its Security America Risk Retention Group (SARRG) insurance program, the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA), Silver Spring, Md., has partnered with RiskCap, a risk management consulting business, to handle the program’s underwriting and marketing functions. RiskCap works cooperatively with local brokers, allowing members to maintain established relationships with their current broker and obtain coverage under SARRG.

“Many of our members were torn between the desire to save significantly on their insurance premiums and the reluctance to leave a broker they had been working with for years,” explained NBFAA executive director Merlin Guilbeau. “Now they don’t have to choose.”

Since signing on with SARRG, George Gunning, NBFAA vice president and president of USA Alarm Systems Inc., Monrovia, Calif., has seen a substantial decrease in his annual premium.

“I would tell any NBFAA member to make sure they get a quote. If I hadn’t, I’d be paying $6,000 more each year,” Gunning said.
