About Us

Who We Are

FASIS was created in 1984 and was formed as a joint powers authority to be a viable and highly successful alternative to the commercial insurance market. FASIS currently consists of nearly two hundred fire and community services districts. Most of these members have participated and shared in FASIS since its inception.

For a fire or community services district to become a member of FASIS, it must be: (1) a public agency that is permitted to self-insure for workers’ compensation coverage in the State of California; and (2) committed to participating in FASIS for a minimum of three program years (July 1 through June 30). To obtain an application and pricing quotation to join FASIS, please contact us.


The Fire Agencies Self Insurance System (FASIS) has met all of the stringent professional standards established by the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities (CAJPA) in the areas of governance, finance, claims control, safety and loss prevention, excess coverage, and risk management. CAJPA’s accreditation process requires reviews by independent consultants in all of the foregoing areas, including accounting, claims management, and actuarial analysis. FASIS is proud to have received an “Accreditation with Excellence,” the highest designation possible from the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities.
