CROUSE — Property owners in the Crouse Volunteer Fire Department tax district can now request an insurance rate reduction through their structure and contents providers.
“This is a welcomed moral boost for this community while jobs and business revenue is at a premium,” said Crouse Chief Milton Sain.
This is a three-year process that each fire department is required to pursue in an effort to prove its effectiveness in providing protection to its district.
Residential property owners within 1,000 feet of a working fire hydrant in the Crouse VFD district will receive up to a 25 percent reduction in their annual fire insurance policy amount.
Commercial properties within the same area may yield an even greater savings as a proactive move toward loss prevention.
Sain credits the work of the department’s members and Board of Directions, the residents of the district for support and the Lincoln County Public Works Department for a vision in extending the water line infrastructure.
Every new fire hydrant extends insurance savings for 1,000, so officials urge residents to notify insurance providers as soon as possible.
