The City of Kingsport has enrolled in a program that allows you, the “user” of a municipal facility, school, or other local government property, to secure cost effective liability insurance, which provides protection for you as well as the governmental entity. The GatherGuard Program is a General Liability Policy written in the name of the tenants and/or users of the local government facility or venue. Third-Party Property Damage Coverage is also provided.
How it Works:
- Go to https://app.gatherguard.com/
- Select the type of event you will be having. The most popular event types are weddings, festivals, meetings, and charity benefits.
- Answer the underwriting questions and supply information about your event.
- Enter the Venue ID Code for the facility you would like use. You can also use the search for the venue you need.*
- You will be able to obtain a quote prior to being asked for any payment information.
Once you submit your payment information, coverage is automatically bound. When you purchase coverage, a Certificate of Insurance is issued and sent via email, in your Name or Organization’s Name, to you and your local government. If you have questions about the eligibility or classification of your event, please contact Susan Kludjian or Christine Mitchell at HUB International N.E. (800) 370-2106.
*For events with locations that span multiple addresses (parades, festivals, and walks or runs) use 415 Broad Street, Kingsport, TN as your venue address.
