Walhalla receives improved ISO ratings
Walhalla Fire Department is alerting home insurance policyholders of improved ISO ratings received by the city. According to Chief Doug Kelley, it sets the stage for a break to the homeowners in the cost of their policies. Inside the corporate limits, the Insured Services Office rating fell from a 4/9 to a 3/9 which means, Kelley said, anyone within 1,000 feet of a hydrant receives a 3. Outside of 1,000 feet from a hydrant the rating is a 9. If you live more than five miles from a fire station, your rating is a 10.
