9 States Added to RiskMeter’s Distance to Fire Station Report

February 13, 2006

CDS Business Mapping LLC., a provider in online property risk mapping, reported that Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Washington and Wisconsin have been added to the RiskMeter Online’s (www.RiskMeter.com) Distance to Fire Station Report. This brings the total number of states to 34.

This report uses routing technology to determine the distance to the three closest fire stations. By simply typing in an address, RiskMeter Online users can get a detailed report that returns drive distance to responding fire stations, names of the stations and staffing.

“The key to underwriting success is being able to quickly assess risk,” explains James Munson, director of Consulting Services, CDS Business Mapping. “The Distance to Fire Station report will immediately guide carriers to decide whether a location is protected or not. Regardless of the training, personnel or equipment at a station, if an insured location is greater than five miles from a station, the chance of a large loss is inevitable. This report will quickly verify the distance from local fire stations, and most importantly, it will improve underwriting performance by saving valuable time and money in the early stages of the underwriting process.”
