WALLS, Miss. (AP) - The fire ratings for the town of Walls and its fire district have improved to the lowest rates in the town's history.
Walls Fire Chief Mike Hancock tells The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/RhzvD5 ) the town's rating dropped from a 7 to a 6. He says the Walls fire district rating has also dropped from an 8 to 7.
Hancock says the lower ratings are due to better fire equipment, manpower in the fire department, training and water supply.
He says the lowered ratings means homeowners and businesses will save money on their residential and commercial insurance.
He says lowered fire ratings could save residents 1% to 8% a year on their homeowners insurance while business owners could see a 5% to 8% savings.
