KING COUNTY FIRE DISTRICT 27

Fire District's
Insurance Rating Improves

The Fire District was recently evaluated 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 rating has improved from Class 5 to Class 4, effective February 1, 2015.

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 improvement in the 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 as a result of this change.

When smoke alarms fail to operate, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected, or dead. Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half. Test your smoke alarm every month is the message for Fire Prevention Week - Info at www.FPW.org
