Most communities consider it a good thing. Development brings prosperity to rural areas, suburbs, and cities everywhere. And many parts of our country are experiencing extraordinary residential and commercial growth.
"In El Paso, we've created a winning team to help our residents and businessowners realize the benefits of improved fire protection. As an example, during our recent Public Protection Classification grading, the fire department, the Texas Department of Insurance, and ISO worked closely together to ensure that we got the maximum credit for installation of fire sprinkler systems in numerous local businesses. We've increased the frequency of inspections of those systems, and we're making sure the related documentation is up to date.
"As a result, El Paso's Public Protection Classification improved to Class 1, and many businessowners and homeowners should see reduced insurance premiums. It proves that a cooperative effort like this benefits everybody."
