Residents in Bazetta township cold see lower home insurance rates in the future as the Bazetta Township Fire Department has received a new rating from the Insurance Services Organization (ISO). The department will be moving from a class 4 rating to a class 3 rating. ISO evaluates a community's water supply, fire hydrants, communication systems, number of personnel, training hours and facilities in order to put out a rating for residents. The ratings calculate how well-equipped fire departments are to put out fires in a particular community. The score is then provided to homeowner's insurance companies to help set insurance rates. The more well-equipped a fire department is to put out a fire, the less likely your house is to burn down and less expensive, to insure.
