WSRB Fire Protection Class Rating

North Whidbey Fire and Rescue recently received a Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau, Fire Protection Class rating of 5 in most areas of the county. The WSRB evaluates cities, towns, fire protection districts, and suburban or rural entities to determine the fire protection capabilities of the community. WSRB assigns each community a Protection Class of 1 through 10, where 1 indicates exemplary fire protection capabilities. The Protection Class evaluation process recognizes the efforts of communities to provide fire protection services for citizens and property owners. This is why insurance companies use Protection Classes to help establish fair premiums for fire insurance generally, offering lower premiums in communities with better protection ratings. By offering economic benefits for communities that invest in their firefighting services, the evaluation provides a real incentive for improving and maintaining fire protection. North Whidbey Fire and Rescues new classification took effect October 1, 2015.
