Anniston homeowners and business owners could see a reduction in their insurance premiums since a national organization increased the Fire Department’s protection rating, Anniston Fire Marshal Jeff Waldrep said on Monday. “They could see anywhere from a $100 to $200 decrease in a year,” Waldrep said. In January, a representative from the Insurance Services Office visited the department and conducted a review, Waldrep said. “It was basically like an audit,” he said. “They looked at our emergency communications, water supply and operations of the department.” A department’s protection rating can be ranked from a one, which means it is an exemplary department, to a 10, which means the department does not meet the organization’s minimum standards, Waldrep said.
