What does "VFIS" stand for in VFIS of North Carolina? 

The "VFIS" acronym started being widely used in 1971 when the new logo incorporated the policy program initials - "Volunteer Firemen's Insurance Services." 

Over the years, the logos have changed but the innovative approach to insurance products and risk management services is still widely referred to as "VFIS."

For more information about the history of the program, the VFIS "about us" page offers information and a history of all the prior logos used.
