Insurance Rating

Your volunteers are helping to save you money!

Most insurance companies use the Fire Protection Classification (PC) to establish fire insurance rates for your home or business. The Washington Survey and Rating Bureau (WSRB) sets the PC based on risk factors and the abilities of the fire department. Because of our volunteers’ dedication to service, a PC 5 rating will apply to dwelling and commercial properties located in the community within five road miles of a responding fire station and having standard fire hydrant distribution and water supply. Properties in the community not meeting the above requirements will receive a different PC rating. We were also evaluated for WSRB Tender Credit, and it was determined that the community will retain this FPC rating credit. Protection Class ratings for individual dwelling and commercial properties are available by calling WSRB Customer Service at 206-217-0101 or emailing
