What is our current Insurance Rating?
REMINDER TO ALL RESIDENTS LIVING WITHIN WESTFIELD VFD'S 5 MILE RESPONSE DISTRICT: Effective July 1, 2019, you should receive a substantial break in your homeowners insurance because Westfield VFD lowered our ISO insurance rating. We lowered our rating from a 9 to a 5 within 5 miles of the station. Depending on your insurance company, if your home is valued at $100,000, you may see a reduction of your annual premium of about $130. THIS IS TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY. If you receive your notice to pay your premium, and don't notice a reduction, call your insurance agent. Sometimes, the insurance company does NOT have the latest figures. You can send them a copy of the letter as proof that our department has lowered its rating. With some insurance companies and agents, you have to be proactive. As always, compare prices with other companies and agents if they refuse to apply our new rating. REMEMBER, YOU MUST LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF OUR STATION ON OLD WESTFIELD RD FOR THIS TO APPLY. If you live outside of our 5 mile district but within our 6 mile district, by state law, your rate will NOT change.
