Suzane Pollard / All Risk Insurance
We’re a locally owned and operated agency that delivers comprehensive insurance and risk management solutions in Pensacola and throughout Northwestern Florida. We’ve served individuals, families, and businesses for more than 35 years and we’re proud to have a longstanding history in our service communities. We’re members of the FAIA, which guides our approach to delivering solutions. We also receive continuing education every year to ensure that we use best practices and that we are on the cutting edge of insurance trends.
We can protect against virtually any risk and we work with a number of AM Best A+ rated carriers. Allied, Tower Hill, and Frontline are among the carriers with which we work and as a result of working with these and other carriers we can provide the best solutions possible. We specialize in home, auto, and business insurance, with a particular focus on auto repair shops, contractors, lawn services and laundromats.
At All Risk Insurance we have a vast home insurance program through which we write policies that are custom-tailored to the needs of individual clients. We’ll tailor a policy to you as a Florida homeowner.
Auto insurance is important for Floridians as well, and like our home insurance program, our auto insurance program is fully customizable to the needs of individuals. From base coverages like liability and collision to additional coverages like diminishing deductible and accident forgiveness, we’ll keep you protected when you’re both on and off the road.
Bundling home and auto insurance makes you eligible for a discount that lowers your rates and for benefits that make extended coverage options available to you. Speak with an agent to learn more.
Businesses in Florida need protection against exposures, and through our business insurance program we provide that protection. We provide a wide variety of coverages that provide a base of protection for virtually any operation and we have programs forspecific industries like contracting and retail.
Securing businesses with broad and flexible insurance policies is one way in which we help contribute to the health of commercial environments in the communities we serve, but there is more than we do to ensure this health. We support and participate in local events and we work with local organizations, and as a result we contribute to commercial health and social health.
We give to a homeless shelter in Pensacola and we work with For the Children of Milton, which provides housing for the homeless and helps children find resources and care that they need. In addition, we sponsor and participate in charities, fundraisers, sporting events, and festivals that celebrate the areas we serve and that help make our service communities better places to live and work. We also work with local organizations that contribute to the socioeconomic growth of the communities we serve. Our involvement with these events and organizations helps us get to know the people and business that we serve better and to become better insurers.
We believe in giving every client the best insurance experience possible and to ensure that such an experience is had we deliver effective and expansive products and personalized services. We help clients make the best insurance investments possible and we help clients maximize the value of these investments.
We can find a market for almost anything and we’re frequently referred to by other insurers. In the event that we cannot insure someone or a commercial enterprise, we justly refer the individual and/or enterprise owner to a specialized agent. We manage risk and claims and we provide ongoing education. This way, our clients can reduce costs and can have advocates. Our clients can also have the informational tools necessary in order to make the best possible decisions about insurance.
We’re fully available to our clients, which means that we can be reached whenever and however they might need to reach us. Via text, email, phone, and/or personal interactions, we communicate with our clients in ways that they prefer. We contact clients before annual reviews to ensure that changes that affect coverages have not occurred, and monitor policies closely to ensure that plans are always current and effective and so that rates are appropriate.
Please contact us or give us a call to learn more or to get started. If you’re ready to start on a policy, feel free to request a quote.

Membership fees are 50% less than the “big corporate” networking companies, and we refuse to turn anyone away because of the money.

Tammy Byrer from Camp Fire Gulf Wind Council and Beej Davis from USO
Our heritage of cultivating community building, supporting academic readiness, and embracing diversity sets us apart.
Camp Fire was founded in 1910 by Luther Gulick, M.D., and his wife, Charlotte Gulick. They created Camp Fire “to guide young people on their journey to self-discovery.” The Gulicks felt strongly that the experiences young people have early in life teach them to care for themselves, their environment, and the people around them for a lifetime.
Camp Fire was America’s first nonsectarian and multicultural organization for girls.
In 1975, Camp Fire became a coeducational organization. Boys and girls learn to play and work alongside each other and appreciate their similarities and differences in positive ways. Today, our programs serve roughly equal numbers of boys and girls.
In 1988, Camp Fire formalized its longstanding focus on teen service and leadership. Teens in Action was created to seize the energy and ideas of teens to tackle real issues in their communities. Nationwide, teens participate annually in community service projects that develop their skills and make real differences in their communities.
In 1993, Camp Fire added sexual orientation to its Inclusion Policy.
In 1997, Camp Fire introduced Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®—a national initiative that has touched millions of youth. Each year, adults and older teens write letters to youth, celebrating each child’s unique talents and pledging their encouragement and support. Absolutely Incredible Kid Day takes place annually on the third Thursday of March.
In 2010, Camp Fire celebrated its 100th birthday. Camp Fire participants across the country all lit campfires at the same time to honor the legacy of our organization. Camp Fire continues to celebrate its birthday on March 17th every year.
In 2012, Camp Fire became the first national youth development organization in the United States to implement the Thriving framework developed by the Thrive Foundation for Youth.

Casino Beach is named after The Casino Resort that first opened its doors in the summer of 1931. It was one of the first tourist retreats on the island and flourished from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. Thousands of visitors from all over the country came together to eat, drink, dance and fish from the Gulf Fishing Pier. Many events were hosted from this little location including fishing tournaments, beauty pageants, and boxing matches. It was even equipped with tennis courts, bath houses, a restaurant and bar. This beloved resort thrived until the late 1960’s, when it ultimately fell into disrepair and closed. Although we have lost the old building of The Casino Resort, we have not lost it’s spirit. Pensacola’s Casino Beach is still home to many attractions and Casino Beach Bar & Grille is the prime location for many of them including the Blue Angels Air Show, which brought in a over 10,000 people in 2014 alone, and the New Year’s Eve Fireworks display held at the end of the Pensacola Gulf Fishing Pier. As the Casino Beach culture continues to evolve, we evolve with it in hopes of giving both tourists and locals the best beach experience possible.
In honor of Pensacola Beach’s proud and rich history, it just felt right bringing back the Casino Beach name. Casino Beach Bar & Grille is one of three different dining and entertainment concepts under the Culture Focused Brands umbrella founded by entrepreneurs, Scott Zepp and Matt LaFon. Zepp and Lafon are true natives to the Gulf Coast area and have always shared an appreciation for Pensacola Beach and the culture that has been created on their favorite little island. Their dream was to build the best beach hangout for locals and travelers alike to enjoy. After finding the perfect location, Casino Beach Bar & Grille was born in June 2014.
From the beautiful panoramic views of the Gulf, to the warm and friendly smiles that greet every guest, Casino Beach Bar & Grille is all about customer experience. We offer signature island cocktails made from hand squeezed fruit juices, quality coastal cuisine & delicious shareables. With our relaxed island vibe and unique location nestled at foot of the Pensacola Gulf Pier, Casino Beach Bar & Grille makes for the perfect beachfront hangout. Stop in and experience what it feels like to be on vacation everyday!

Pensacola Business Radio-Spotlight Episode-Kevin Miller/Author-Declared Hostile
IT HAD ALL GONE TO HELL SO QUICKLY… Wilson shot a glance over his right shoulder at San Ramón. In addition to the blinking of anti-aircraft artillery guns, he could see clouds of smoke on the field from the numerous Slash hits. Breathing through his mouth, he concentrated on getting fast and maintaining a slight climb. Bright fireballs of AAA shot by him in groups of three and four, orderly trails from low to high. His body was tense, ready for impact. He felt and heard the thud behind, on his right. Terrified, he twisted his body in the ejection seat to see what he could, pushing his helmet and goggles with his left hand to see over his wing. Through the narrow field of view of the goggles, he sensed flickering behind him. He then felt the airplane yaw right. Both were signs he had lost thrust on the right side. Sonofabitch!
