Currituck New Fire Ratings

Good news – the NC Department of Insurance Office of the State Fire Marshal has recently completed inspections of Currituck County Volunteer Fire Departments. The inspections have resulted in lower ratings in several districts which could transfer to savings in insurance cost for homeowners. A new “7” rating will be effective November 1, 2007 for homes within five road miles of a fire station and within 1,000 feet of fire hydrant in the Lower Currituck and Moyock Fire Districts; down from a 9E rating. A “6” rating will be effective November 1, 2007 for structures within five road miles of a fire station and within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant in the Crawford Township Fire District. The Corolla Fire District will move to a district wide rating of “6” effective December 1, 2007; the rating is currently a 6/9S. The new ratings are being forwarded to Insurance Services Office, Inc. which reports them to the various insurance companies. Check with your agent to see if your policy is affected by the new ratings!
