Huntiey Fire District Achieves Lower iSO Ratings By Tracey Schwartz Huntley Fire Protection District Chief Dave Veath announced the department's improved fire insurance classification to Class Five (5) from Class Seven (7). This improved rating from ISO Commercial Risk Services, Inc., has the potential to benefit all commercial and residential property insurance policy holders in the Huntley Fire Protection District. Chief Veath recommends that each person contact their individual insurance agency and advise them of the new rating. It could mean lower premiums. According to Veath, not only will this affect Huntley but also a large portion of LITH. Veath says he is "extremely proud of the work the department did to be able to bring this classification down." In addition, he wishes to thank Huntley Public Works Director Jim Schwartz, the Village of Huntley Water Department and the LITH Water Department for their work with the fire hydrant testing required for the better rating. Veath says the rating came back "within a few points of Class 4, so now they will work toward achieving that even lower rating." The rating is based on l) receiving and handling fire alarms; 2) response times; 3) training records of personnel; 4) maintenance and updating of equipment; and 5) water supply. This rating applies to those areas within 1,000 feet of a public fire hydrant, and 5 road miles or less to the responding fire station. All other areas up to 10 road miles are rated Class 9 and areas over 10 road miles to the responding fire station are Class 10. The classification applies to properties with a needed fire flow of 3,500 gpm (gallons per minute) or less. The private and public protection at properties with larger needed fire flows are individually evaluated, and may vary from the village classification.
