November fire report

Here’s the November fire report, fresh off the press from Chief Dave Hoefer: November 2012 fire report.

Some highlights:

  • The fire department responded to 176 calls for service in November, five of them being structure fires.
  • They estimate more than $500,000 worth of property was lost in fires in November. But so far this year, they project almost $4 million has been saved.
  • The ISO rating for properties beyond 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant but within five road miles of a recognized fire station improved from a Class 9 to a Class 7. Insurance companies use ISO ratings to assess risk and determine insurance premiums.
