Public Protection | Community Fire Protection Evaluation

The Public Protection department evaluates fire protection capabilities of cities and fire protection districts to determine community protection classes and evaluates the effectiveness of building code enforcement of cities and counties to determine Building Code Effectiveness Grading (BCEG) classifications. We provide municipal authorities, such as fire, water and building departments, with information and advice concerning factors which can affect property insurance rating.

For an overview of Protection Class evaluations, BCEGS gradings and other Public Protection documentation, please see the "Publications" section of our Web site.

For subscribers who have questions about Protection Classes found on the WSRB web site, please contact customer service at 206.217.0101.
