Fire Patrol can trace its beginnings
back to 1803, when the Mutual Assistance
and Bag Corporation was formed by
a group of volunteers to protect and
preserve the contents of buildings
from fire and water damage.
these goals remain paramount. The
Patrol preserves and protects everything
from museum works of art to sophisticate
electronic and computer equipment
in high-rise buildings.
Fire Patrol's firehouses (two in Manhattan,
one in Brooklyn), respond 24 hours-a-day,
seven days a week with these activities
being supported by assessments on
all property insurance written in
the Patrol's territory.
fact, the Fire Patrol responds to
more than 10,000 alarms annually,
savings only pertain to contents;
they do not include the savings to
buildings, uninsured property and
contingent coverage’s. Inclusion
of these components would dramatically
increase this figure.
