Our People: Michael Currie 

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”  ~ Margaret Mead 


Michael has worked in the insurance industry for over 15 years, and began to work with Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS) under Insurers Advisory Organization (IAO) in 2001. He studied Civil Engineering Technology at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and is a graduate in Fire Engineering from the Institution of Fire Engineers. After starting his career evaluating fire risk through plan review and code compliance assessment, he has spent the past 13 years working with the FUS evaluating public fire protection and publishing the Canadian Fire Insurance Grading Index. Michael was the architect of digitizing the Fire Insurance Grading Index and has implemented GIS technology throughout the fire insurance grading process to facilitate more accurate fire insurance grades. In 2008, he became Director of Fire Underwriters Survey.
