La Vergne residents could see a decrease in their homeowner's and commercial property insurance premiums thanks to new initiatives pushed forward by The La Vergne Fire Department. The department was able to achieve a Class 3 ISO rating which puts the La Vergne Fire Department in the top 9% ISO-graded fire departments in the country.
La Vergne Fire Chief Rick McCormick was notified last week of the new class rating. "This is something we have been trying to achieve for awhile now. I couldn't be prouder of our Department," said McCormick.
According to an email sent to WGNS, the La Vergne Fire Department is encouraging all La Vergne residents and businesses within the city to notify their insurance carriers as to the ISO rate change. The email suggested that you should not forget to mention your distance from a fire hydrant, as this can also make a difference in insurance premiums. The new Class 3 rating takes effect October 1, 2016.
