New Fire Station Could Cut Insurance Rates In Half

By | Blog | No Comments

The Safari HUrban Fire Station Houseighlands Ranch proposal includes provisions to add vital resources such as  an essential fire station in the area. The main benefit of this new fire station is enhanced safety due to significantly reduced response times for emergency services. But also of significant benefit will be its impact to homeowners insurance rates, both for those within and adjacent to the development.

Currently, emergency response times for this area are well outside of Escondido’s established standards and also well outside the normal underwriting parameters of the insurance industry. A new fire station in this region will address both the real safety concerns and financial impacts of each homeowner caused by this issue, which is why it is important to us.

We have consulted with residential home insurance experts for the region and estimate that a fire station in the area could reduce individual premiums by as much as 50 percent. That’s a significant savings – as much as $2,000 per year for each homeowner!
