Welcome to Ohio Public Risk Insurance Agency dba VFIS of Ohio. OPRIA was established specifically to meet the unique insurance and risk management needs of Ohio’s Emergency Service Organizations and Public Entities. In 1984 we began VFIS of Ohio to become the premier Emergency Service provider in Ohio.
