Fire ratings affect homeowner insurance

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - New requirements for fire departments may affect your insurance rates.

After being forced to meet two separate standards for insurance purposes, fire departments are now able to roll those standards into one.

In the past, the Insurance Service Office and the National Fire Protection Association each had a standard that fire departments had to meet.

Now, the two agencies require fire departments to meet just one combined standard.

The departments will then be rated on how well they meet that standard.

These ratings affect homeowner insurance rates based on how well your fire department meets those standards.
