City Of Taylorville Sees Increase In Fire Rating

The City of Taylorville has recently seen an upgrade in its Public Protection Classification or PPC.  The new rating is 3/3Y. This is down from the previous rating of 4/4Y. The Insurance Service Organization rates over 40,000 fire departments across the United States and the rating given to departments is then used by most insurers when calculating insurance premiums.  The lower the rating the greater the potential for lowering insurance premiums. 


ISO looks at 4 different areas for determining a PPC rating. Emergency communications systems, fire department structure and organization, water supply systems, and community efforts to reduce the risk of fire are all ways that can lower your rating. The Taylorville Fire Department, Taylorville Water Department, and the Christian-Shelby County 9-1-1 center have all improved or stayed the same in their work to teach, maintain, and raise fire prevention. The Taylorville Fire Department thanked Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry, Taylorville City Council, and the Christian Shelby ETSB.  


The new rating takes effect on April 1st, 2023.  Homeowners and business owners are encouraged to contact their insurance providers to see how this new rating will affect them.
