Consider the fact that most of these things need to pass city council, fire department, and police department acceptance before they are approved. That helps protect YOU from some idiot who would just rubber stamp everything that comes before them. When people get injured and sue, they tend to sue EVERYONE, the haunt, the or company that runs it, the individuals involved, the property owners, the city, the police and FD, etc. So cities doing thorough inspections before they approve anything are actually saving you money and court time. Most city councils are made up of volunteers that only meet once or twice a month, and that they actually have more to do than just your haunt.My question is, 30 days? How slow is that bureaucracy?
One of the people that sponsored Transworld was a man named Donat. He was from Westland insurance. They had all these ads about no haunt too big or too small for their insurance. I didn't go talk to them, however, so that is all the information I have.I am struggling to find anyone that will insure our haunted woods. Every place that I have called locally just says they do not insure those types of businesses. Does anyone know of someplace I can buy it online? A friend of mine said they thought they knew of a place but the cost is 600.00 for just the month of October only. Is it normally that high? Just seems like a lot to insure a business for one month. But I guess considering this type of business, it probably does run pretty high.
I know this is not about smoke detectors, but my girls had a dance at their HS with fog, set off the fire alarms, What a mess that was!:googly:Interested in this, any additional information available? Links or such? The local school where I have my charity haunt uses ionization detectors and the local Fire Department says the fog will set them off...
This is true according to our home owner insurance. This is why we carry an additional insurance policy for the haunt.DD, You might want to ask your insurance agent again and specifically tell him that you take donations, as in a donations box maybe??? I remember speaking with an insurance agent haunter years ago who said that donations were considered "implied admission fees", and that they would also void your homeowners insurance, maybe even supersede the towns coverage of your haunt as well.

Haunti, if you can find stuff like that for the state of Alabama, I'd be greatly appreciative. I've searched all week for it.
