Freeway Insurance to Sponsor Bomberos Fire Training Academy

Huntington Beach June 14, 2014 – Freeway Insurance is proud to announce its support as a sponsor of the Los Angeles County Bomberos Association’s fire training academy, scheduled for June 14 – June 21, 2014, in Los Angeles, California. Freeway Insurance is part of the Confie Seguros family of companies, the largest, privately-held insurance broker in the United States and one of the top 20 global insurance brokers in the world.

The week-long training academy, held in collaboration with the L. A. County Fire Department, will host 30 firefighters from 18 different cities throughout Mexico. These visiting firefighters will be instructed in critically needed skills, including structure and wild land firefighting skills, emergency medical training, and hands-on training with vehicle extrication equipment techniques using the “Jaws of Life”.

“We are proud to be a sponsor for this international safety training exercise and support the L.A. County Bomberos Association. This humanitarian effort in sharing vital life-saving techniques with fellow firefighters will have a significant impact in giving them the tools and training needed to save more lives in their communities,” said Valeria Rico, Chief Operating Officer of Confie Seguros.

The L.A. County Bomberos Association is a diverse and multicultural organization dedicated to supporting and educating members of our local communities and firefighters in Latin America through training, donations, scholarships and local community outreach programs.

Freeway Insurance will present a check to the Bombero Academy on Sunday, June 15th, to help the Academy continue its tradition of meeting the needs of the under-served. For more information about the Los Angeles County Bomberos Association visit: http://www.lacobomberos.org/
