Improved Fire Rating in Louisiana Parish Means Lower Insurance Rates

August 4, 2014

Homeowners in the Grand Chenier area will be paying less for fire insurance starting in August because of a higher rating awarded to the local fire district.

The American Press reports the rating for Cameron Parish Fire District 9 was raised from Class 6 to Class 5.

The Property Insurance Association of Louisiana sets ratings for fire districts, and the state insurance commissioner approves them. Ratings are on a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the worst and one being the best.

District 9 Chief Mark LeBouef says the improved rating was largely the result of firefighters demonstrating quick response to fires.
