Fireman’s Fund was founded in San Francisco in 1863 by retired sea captain William Holdredge. He started an insurance company to protect the homes and businesses of San Francisco, a town that was booming due to the Gold Rush.
Our name comes from Holdredge’s pledge to donate 10% of company profits to the widows and children of fallen San Francisco firefighters.
Caring. Courageous. Dependable. Inspired. These are our company values, modeled on the honorable attributes of firefighters. They are principles we look to demonstrate every day, in every moment. In moments when we help to rebuild after a disaster, moments we’re there to answer a policyholder’s question, moments when we partner with agents and brokers to design an innovative solution.
