Covered perils for this extension are limited to fire, lightning, explosion, riot and civil commotion, and aircraft. Conspicuous by their absence are perils such as vandalism and windstorm, to which outdoor property can be especially susceptible.

    $2,500 at each location; excludes loss by theft, tools, and equipment.
