West Thurston Improves Fire Protection Rating; Property Owners should contact their Insurance Company and inquire about a property insurance premium savings.
A recent evaluation and assessment by the Washington Survey and Rating Bureau (WSRB) of the fire departments' fire stations, apparatus, staffing levels, and training and emergency service delivery capabilities resulted in a substantial rating improvement from a protection class PC8 to a PC5.
A local insurance agency (Amica) estimated the property insurance premium savings to be 23%. However each insurance carrier is different so beginning September 1st, 2015 residents and business owners in the region are encouraged to check with their insurance carrier.
This accomplishment is the result of years of planning, development and voter support to fund improvements. The voters have recognized the importance of and invested in developing and maintaining quality emergency services. Now the Rating Bureau has recognized the community’s efforts by reducing their insurance premiums. If you have questions please contact Chief Russ Kaleiwahea at (360) 352-1614.
