CHICAGO — Lancer Insurance Company’s Vice President and Safety Director Bob Crescenzo recently made a major presentation on Sept. 27 about the subject of bus and motorcoach fires at the “FIVE 2012” Fire In Vehicles” conference in Chicago.
Crescenzo was joined in the presentation by Lancer’s Senior Claims Examiner and bus fire specialist Paul Paterniti.
Sponsored by the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, Crescenzo’s presentation integrated extensive bus fire data from Lancer’s in-house data and public U.S. government statistics to emphasize that, despite technological advancements in bus design and manufacturing, the fire risk has not diminished.
In fact, he further explained that ironically those same technical advancements are partially responsible for an increase in the frequency and cost of bus fires as some have significantly raised temperatures in critical fire-prone engine compartment areas.
Crescenzo was invited to speak by leaders of Sweden’s SP Technical Research Institute which recently developed a new standard for fire suppression systems in engine compartments of buses and coaches.
Lancer Insurance Company has been the leading specialty insurer of buses and motorcoaches in the U.S. since 1985.
