It was recently announced that the Village's fire insurance "key
rate" for commercial and industrial properties has beenreduced from
29 cents to 26 cents per $100 and the fire grade improved from Class
5 to Class 4. The dwelling rate, which is based on the fire grade, im-proved
from Class "B" to Class "A", the lowest possible rate for pri-vate
An inspection of Freeport's fire defenses was made during April
and May by the New York Fire Insurance Rating Organization, at no
cost to the Village, Among the factors considered in classifying the
Village were: dependable method of handling fire alarms; ability to
supply water for fire fighting; strength and efficiency of the fire de-partment;
scope and enforcement of building, fire protection and el-ectrical
codes; construction, size and congestion of buildings. .
As a result of the re-classification, Freeporters will qualify for
fire insurance at a lower cost than in the past. It is suggested that
residents and businessmen bring these facts to the attention of their
insurance brokers and agents.
