Volunteers are essential to public entities. They can assist in supporting community events, senior services, and neighborhood cleanup efforts. Volunteers also assist in fundraising events and support services to local police, libraries, parks and recreation as well as support local firefighter and ambulance activities.
In an effort to provide additional financial protection to these volunteers, NYS Public Entities Safety Group 497 is offering Volunteer Participant Coverage to its members via Glatfelter Specialty Benefits/ACE American Insurance Company. This coverage is intended to provide financial assistance to those individuals that are injured while volunteering their services to your organization who would not otherwise be covered on your Workers’ Compensation insurance policy.
