SeymourVFD wants to share
some great news!
Homeowners insurance fees are based on a community fire service classification rating from the Insurance Services Office, ISO. This community rating, also referred to as a Public Protection Classification (PPC) is a 1-10 grade which includes levels of fire protection, water supply/infrastructure and 9-1-1 service. A rating of 1 is the best protection that a fire department can offer and a rating of 10 is equivalent to no fire department at all. Since 1987, Seymour’s Community has been rated as a 7/9 depending on several individual factors to each home. After an extensive inspection and interview process from ISO, Seymour VFD is honored and excited to announce to our 17,000 homes & businesses that our rating has ben lowered to a 5/5x. What does this mean? This should save our community members 4%-6% on their homeowner’s insurance, or an estimated $100,000 a year for our Tri-County response area.
