Security firm 1st Watch Global will provide assessments for an active assailant coverage program from Pioneer Programs Insurance Solutions LLC, based in Pasadena, California, and London-based EC3 Brokers Ltd.

The Targeted Violence Program: Pioneer/1st Watch Global Program is available primarily for the U.S. market and more broadly through Delaware-based 1st Watch Global’s network of contractors, backed by capacity from Lloyd’s of London, EC3 said in a statement.

Covered risks include terrorism, active assailants, events caused by cars or bombs and other targeted violence at schools, health care facilities, entertainment venues, houses of worship, hospitality venues, shopping centers and other sites, an EC3 spokeswoman said in an email.

The form includes third-party bodily injury and first-person physical damage with limits up to $10 million, according to the spokeswoman.
