Continuing its long history of being a loyal supporter of the Fire Service Community, United Services is proud to be a Corporate Partner for the Iowa State Fire Marshal Smoke Detector Project.
"I want to offer my personal gratitude for supporting our 100% Smoke Detector Campaign. Your decision to
fund . . . smoke detector systems for hearing impaired children has not gone unnoticed. Every year, over 60 families are turned away because there is no mechanism to provide detectors to them. I sleep better knowing your support will save lives in Iowa. Some Iowa companies say they support Iowans. United Services doesn't just say it, you do it! Your continued support to the fire service is greatly appreciated."

United Services commitment to the Race For The Cure began in 1996, after our “Family” experienced the disease first-hand. For the past 15 years, we have been steadfast supporters, putting together a team of runners and walkers for the Event each year. In 2008, United Services was recognized for putting together the 2nd largest “Breast Cancer Survivor Support Team” in the October Event. Deb’s Parrotheads continues its loyalty each year with over 100 members strong!
Each August, United Services hosts a Golf Outing with over 280 participants from the insurance industry and fire service. The proceeds are then awarded each year to three local fire departments as our way of thanking them for their service. United Services has proudly made these financial contributions to the fire service community for more than 25 years! In 2012, the following three local departments each received donation checks of more than $2250:
- Carlisle Fire Department
- Clive Fire Department
- Grimes Fire Department
In addition to the efforts above, United Services has been involved with many other great causes in our community. Among those are:
- LifeServe Blood Center
- Toys for Tots
- Youth Emergency Services Shelter
- American Red Cross – Central Iowa Chapter
- National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
- March of Dimes
