1st Guard Corporation is a commercial truck insurance company in Venice, Florida selling physical damage and nontrucking liability insurance direct to truckers and fleets. Founded 1937 in Venice, Florida, it is an insurance provider for independent trucking companies, offering physical damage, non-trucking liability, occupational accident and passenger accident insurance coverage.

The Corporation started as a Detroit based insurance agency. Initially the company sold general lines' insurance to small businesses. It later created a truck insurance division to supplement its general lines' sales. Mr. Edmund B. Campbell, Jr. purchased the company in 1965 and directed a larger share of the agency's resources to developing insurance products for independent truckers. His efforts culminated in 1969, when Mr. Campbell, Jr. divested the general lines' portion of the agency. That made 1st Guard Corporation an exclusive provider of truck insurance programs for owner operators, and the company has never looked back. In 1991, Mr. Campbell, Jr. sold the company to his son, Mr. Edmund B. Campbell, III. Under Mr. Campbell, III the company embarked upon a growth and automation strategy that led to the formation of First Guard Insurance Company in 1997.
