The Lexington Fire Department has been recognized by the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Office of the State Fire Marshal, for receiving a District Rating of 2 for 2017. This is an improvement from Lexington's previous Rating of 3 and represents a tremendous amount of work performed over several years by the entire Fire Department in order to receive this rating. This rating can significantly lower homeowners' insurance ratings thus, a cost savings to our residents.
The NC Response Rating System ranges from 1 (highest) to 10 (uncertified by state). The rating is based on an inspection of staffing levels, sufficient equipment, proper maintenance of equipment, communications capabilities and availability of a water source.
The Lexington Fire Department is now 1 of 16 departments in the State of North Carolina with a District Rating of 2 out of a total of 1,532 total fire departments!
