California Casualty Hits a Homerun With First Responders


Colorado Springs, CO, May 5, 2014 … California Casualty sponsored the inaugural First Responders Night with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Triple-A baseball team, April 24. Hundreds of first responders and their families were treated to a night of baseball with the Colorado Rockies minor league affiliate.

California Casualty used the occasion to thank public safety personnel for all the hard work they do. Of the 4,000 ticket vouchers distributed to law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMTs in the Colorado Springs area, 33 percent were redeemed for free admission to the game – meaning one-third of the evening’s 3,900 in attendance came courtesy of California Casualty. First responders were also invited to sign up for the latest California Casualty “Work Hard/Play Hard" contest for the chance to win a new Harley-Davidson Seventy-two motorcycle, or $10,000.

 “First Responder Night was a perfect way to acknowledge these brave men and women who do so much for our communities,” said California Casualty Vice President Mike McCormick.

The sponsorship opens a new door for California Casualty as the company looks to expand its brand awareness to the niche markets it serves: educators, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and nurses.

California Casualty has been the trusted provider of auto and home insurance for public safety groups for more than 40 years.

Headquartered in San Mateo, CA, with Service Centers in Arizona, Colorado and Kansas, California Casualty provides auto and home insurance to educators, firefighters, law enforcement and nurses across the country.
