North Carolina Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Wayne Goodwin recently announced that the Tri-Beach Fire Department completed their routine inspection and received a rating of “4” for the Holden Beach District. The “4” rating is an improvement from the department’s previous “5” rating and will be effective on August 1, 2016. Ratings of responding fire departments directly impact property insurance calculations.
Among other things, the routine inspections look for proper staffing levels, sufficient equipment, proper maintenance of equipment, communications capabilities and availability of a water source.
The Town of Holden Beach would like to commend Chief Doug Todd and the rest of the Tri-Beach Fire Department on their improved rating for our area. We really appreciate the department’s hard work and dedication!
