The Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau (WSRB) inspects and evaluates the fire protection capabilities of cities, counties, and municipal fire districts.
WSRB evaluates the effort a community has made to provide fire protection services to citizens and property owners. Ratings range from class 1 to 10, with class 1 representing superior property fire protection, and is determined based on four major factors:
These class ratings can help the public in the goal of achieving adequate and equitable insurance coverage. Improvements to a WSRB Fire Protection Class Rating may result in lower fire insurance premiums on homes and businesses in the community.
Currently, Fire District #11 is a Class 5/6 rating. Meaning, if your building or residence is within 1,000 feet of a working fire hydrant, you are a Class 5. If you are NOT within that 1,000 feet of a working fire hydrant, you are a Class 6 rating.
