Security First Insurance is a trusted provider of insurance products in Florida. has been working with Security First for a number of years and continues to offer their quality products.

The company’s plans are backed by strong financial stability ratings – always the best first step. Tried and true products, reliable claims handling, fair pricing, and simplicity in business operations further support as your new home insurance carrier.

For 100 years, Security First has insured homes throughout the Sunshine State. Despite being an exclusively Floridian carrier, the company’s roots can be traced back to 1918 in Iowa, when Ernest Olmsted opened his first agency. Olmsted was the great grandfather of Security First’s Chairman and President, Locke Burt.

Locke Burt was raised in the insurance industry. He made an impact in Florida as a State Senator in 1992, when Hurricane Andrew’s aftermath led to more than $26 billion in insured property loss. For 10 years after Andrew’s historical destruction, Locke used his position in the government to address criminal justice issues, helping to make Florida safer. Locke also worked to change laws that would create more options for Florida home insurance policies.

Locke isn’t the only power player on the Security First team. Chairman Emeritus Harry Bleiwise is the owner of Rider Insurance Company, founded in 1977. Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel Melissa Burt DeVriese represents the female side of executive leadership at Security First, handling HR, Security, Training, and Legal aspects of the business. Power to the women in business!

When Lock Burt and Harry Bleiwise teamed up in 2005 to start Security First Insurance, their goal was to create a company committed to Florida, no matter what storms make landfall, or other perils disturb Florida homes and properties.

Home Insurance from Security First is flexible to meet your needs, with options for a variety of scenarios:


Coverage A (Structure of your Home)


Covering damages to your house at replacement cost, the dwelling limit is $125,000 to $1 Million, or at least $150,000 if you live in a coastal region.


Coverage B (Other Structures)


Garage, shed, gazebo, in-ground pools, and other detached structures are covered between 2 and 70 percent of Coverage A. You may add on special coverage for your swimming pool and enclosures as needed.


Coverage C (Your Contents)


Protect your valuables and plain old stuff. Personal property coverage is available up to 75 percent of Coverage A. While other carriers might skip on this one, replacement cost on contents comes standard in Security First Insurance policies.


Coverage D (If your home is uninhabitable)


If your house is not livable after a covered loss, Security First offers coverage for extra living costs incurred while you take a quick vacay and wait for your home to be restored to acceptable condition. Coverage is offered up to 10 percent of Coverage A for Loss of Use.


Coverage E (Personal Liability)


Personal Liability coverage is offered between $100,000 and $500,000 to help pay for accidents like an injury that takes place on your grounds. Additionally, Liability insurance can help pay for an attorney if charges are pressed against you for said injury to others on your property.


Coverage F (Medical Payments)
