A group of dedicated firefighters—volunteers in the truest sense of the word—are making a money-saving difference for residents in the towns of Antigo, Polar and Price.
Following an extensive audit, the Insurance Service Organization, known as the ISO, has reduced the town of Antigo Volunteer Fire Department’s public protection classification from a 7 to a 6. The rating is used by insurers for underwriting and calculating premiums for residential, commercial and industrial properties.
“Some carriers do offer a better rate moving from an ISO rating of 7 to 6,” Bruce Kommers of McCormick-Klessing & Associates of Antigo, said. “That better rating will, in some instances, reduce the premium.”
