Fire Insurance Rating
Fire District Retains its Class 4 Insurance Rating
The Fire District was recently evaluated in January, 2018 by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau (WSRB) as part of their Community Update Program. Residents and Property Owners will be pleased to know that the Fire District has retained its class 4 rating.
This rating applies to buildings that are within 1,000 feet of a hydrant with an adequate water supply, and the building is located within five miles from the fire station.
Fire Protection agencies throughout the state are periodically reviewed by the WSRB to determine the level of fire protection they offer to their communities. The WSRB evaluates departments in a number of categories such as water supply (hydrants), equipment, facilities, staffing, response times, training, fire prevention, code enforcement and communications. Protection classes range from 1-10, a 1 being the highest and a 10 being the lowest protection rating.
This rating may have an impact on insurance premiums. The WSRB recommends that residents and property and business owners of Fire District 27 contact their insurance carriers to check for possible savings.
