Huntington Fire now has an ISO Protection Class Rating!

HLVFD has earned it's first ever protection class rating which should greatly reduce the amount you pay for fire insurance! Areas on the east of the Lake within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant and all of the Dowville Tract now has a six (6) rating based on amount of water available for a fire from fire hydrants. The rest of the Lake has been assigned a 6Y rating which is based on how much water the Fire Department can bring to a fire.

Should your tract wish to improve your protection class rating contact the fire chief about requirements of your water system.

Residents are encouraged to contact their insurance agents right away!
