Insurance Reduction Rating - EFFECTIVE 08/01/2024

ISO EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2024: Westfield VFD is happy to announce a reduction in our state ISO Insurance rating from a "5" to a "4" effective August 1, 2024. This means that if your business or church structure is within our 5-mile response district (5 road-miles from our station), you should see a reduction in your fire insurance costs effective August 1st. Businesses and churches may need to contact their insurance agent to ensure your insurance company has the latest rating information (actual savings depends on your insurance company). If you see Chief Jonathan Sutphin or any of your local firefighters, please thank them for their hard work and dedication to ensure your insurance premiums are as low as possible. We thank each home owner, business, and church in our response district for their support.

CURRENT ISO: REMINDER TO ALL RESIDENTS LIVING WITHIN WESTFIELD VFD'S 5 MILE RESPONSE DISTRICT: Effective July 1, 2019, you should receive a substantial break in your homeowners insurance because Westfield VFD lowered our ISO insurance rating. We lowered our rating from a 9 to a 5 within 5 miles of the station. Depending on your insurance company, if your home is valued at $100,000, you may see a reduction of your annual premium of about $130. THIS IS TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY. If you receive your notice to pay your premium, and don't notice a reduction, call your insurance agent. Sometimes, the insurance company does NOT have the latest figures. You can send them a copy of the letter as proof that our department has lowered its rating. With some insurance companies and agents, you have to be proactive. As always, compare prices with other companies and agents if they refuse to apply our new rating. REMEMBER, YOU MUST LIVE WITHIN 5 MILES OF OUR STATION ON OLD WESTFIELD RD FOR THIS TO APPLY. If you live outside of our 5 mile district but within our 6 mile district, by state law, your rate will NOT change.
