SAN FRANCISCO, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States, offers a unique program called Insurance on the Playa, which offers liability coverage for theme camps, art cars and art installations for participants of the Burning Man event.

Heffernan Insurance Brokers is accepting submissions through August 9th, 2015 for the 2015 Burning Man event.  The program provides coverage for general liability with limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence / $2,000,000 aggregate if the policyholder is sued by a third party alleging bodily injury or damage to their property. There is no deductible associated with this coverage.

Heffernan's Amy Vitarelli (San Francisco) and Benjamin Stern (Los Angeles) have worked for years refining the program.  As veteran participants of Burning Man themselves, they were able to secure the program again with a key, top-rated carrier in underwriting the program. 

"We are really excited to be able to offer participants a way to protect themselves," commented Vitarelli, to which Stern added, "While at the same time, making the process extremely easy and affordable."
