Clyde Fire Department recently underwent a state inspection that improved their insurance rating.
The businesses and homeowners in the Clyde/Central Haywood fire district will most likely see a reduction in their insurance premiums as a result. A homeowner who lives in the rural district could see an average decrease of $150-$180 of their insurance premiums annually, depending on the size and value of their home. The Clyde Fire Department currently has the lowest insurance rating in Haywood County.
The North Carolina Rating system is on a five-year cycle but departments can request an early review. Things such as new equipment and improvements to water systems play an important role in the rating.
