BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Fireman's offers GridPoint product discount


NOVATO, Calif.—Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. has struck an alliance with intelligent energy management product provider GridPoint Inc. under which the insurer will offer policyholders a discount on GridPoint products.

Through its Prestige Advisory Services, Novato, Calif.-based Fireman's Fund will offer policyholders a 20% discount on GridPoint products offering clean backup power, renewable energy integration and online energy management for homeowners.

According to the insurer, the alliance gives policyholders access to an environmentally sound solution for protecting homes and businesses from power outages, easily integrating solar or wind energy sources, and increasing energy efficiency through online energy management.

As a result, Fireman's Fund customers can reduce the risks that power outages present to homeowners—from security system failures to damage of collections in climate-controlled areas—in addition to the potential energy efficiency benefits they can realize.

Through the service, Fireman's Fund Prestige policyholders have access to GridPoint Central, a personal Web portal allowing customers to manage their household energy use online. In addition, Washington-based GridPoint's operations center constantly monitors GridPoint products to ensure optimal performance, and also handles any maintenance issues.
