MORONGO VALLEY’S FIRE RISK RATING IMPROVES; RESIDENTS MAY SEE LOWER INSURANCE BILLS

Morongo Valley did receive some good news this week, and that good news may have an effect on residents’ wallets. The Morongo Valley Fire Department’s risk rating has been upgrade. Reporter Mike Lipsitz explains what that means…
Morongo Valley business and property owners may see a reduction in their insurance premiums next year. The good news came Tuesday when Community Services District General Manager Rick Lebel and Fire Chief Jock Johnson learned that the District’s fire risk rating had been upgraded. The change followed a recent inspection by Insurance Services Office. ISO is a nationwide risk assessment company that provides data to insurance underwriters. ISO upgraded the downtown commercial area from a five to a four; and outlying areas moved from a 9 to an 8B. Chief Johnson called the upgrade a significant milestone and great achievement. He attributed the change to improved Fire Department staffing and the addition of water tenders in the outlying areas. Residents can contact their insurers to see how the rating upgrade will affect premiums.
