As of May 1 st , 2018, the Insurance Services Organization (ISO), the body responsible for setting fire protection classes for property owner’s insurance agencies, has granted Lefthand FPD a 4/10 rating for the entire district, showing improvement from our prior rating of 6/9. The properties in the district with a 10 rating are greater than 5 road miles from a station, there are very few of those properties.
What’s next? You should consider contacting your homeowner’s/property insurance company and let them know that our rating has improved! It could cause a rate readjustment for you in your favor and/or remediate a possible increase. Should an insurance provider need a letter from the Fire Department, we would be happy to provide one, contact us today!
