Understanding a property’s risk of fire damage based on the ability of firefighting personnel to suppress a fire is essential when establishing policy fire protection premiums. For example, did you know that the closest fire station to a property is not always the station assigned to servicing that property?
Improve Your Fire Risk Underwriting Decisions
- Learn fire district type: paid, volunteer, combination of both, private, and subscription
- Determine true driving distance, within 5 miles, from the responding fire station to a property
- Pinpoint the correct responding fire station associated with a given property
- Locate geographic coordinates and address for each fire station
- Confirm the availability of municipal water for fighting fires
- Determine which properties are at high risk due to extreme distance to station, type of department, or absence of water source
