Doug Smerkar

A letter from the Chairman of the Board of the Clintonville VFD:


“The Clintonville VFD Board of Directors recently approved the purchase of our building and contents insurance coverage through one of your agencies, VFIS.  We would like to thank Doug Smerkar for all the work he performed on our behalf to successfully pull this effort together.  We are extremely pleased that our insurance protection is not only better than we previously had in place, but also somewhat less expensive.


Doug went above and beyond our expectations by providing us with timely answers to our many questions and was readily available to meet during evenings which were, at times, treacherous. Doug’s professionalism, affability and concern for brother firefighters made a lasting impression among all the members of the fire department.  It is a pleasure to have made a lasting friend in Doug. We look forward a long lasting relationship with Charles Leach and VFIS, thanks to Doug.”
