Protecting Career and Volunteer Fire and EMS Professionals and Their Equipment

With a heartfelt compassion for the fire departments in the local community, Scarlette Bennett is an active member of the Fallen Firefighters Association. She provides financial and emotional support to the families of fallen firefighters all over North Carolina. Scarlette was introduced to the needs of firefighters and the EMS persons by Jay Howell, founder of Code 3 Insurance and a veteran of the insurance industry. Jay was the chief to the Nahunta Volunteer Fire Department for 36 years and launched Code 3 Insurance in 1984.

“Jay’s dedication to the fire departments inspired me to embrace his mission to provide the utmost protection for the firefighters and their families,” Scarlette explains. “Like many in the service professions, firefighters and EMS professionals do not get the recognition they truly deserve. Providing them with opportunities to protect their assets, their lives, and their livelihood, is just one way I can give back in gratitude.”
