We are pleased to announce that, effective June 1, 2016, residents living on or off of Sidbury Road, beginning at the County line and ending at 7000 Sidbury Road will be eligible for a new Property Protection Class (also known as Fire Insurance) rating of 4/9E. For the majority, this rating is an improvement and should have a positive impact on homeowners insurance, the remainder will notice no change.
This change has been possible through our partnership with Pender EMS and Fire with the approvals of the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners and the North Carolina Office of the State Fire Marshal. The class 4 rating applies to all properties with a required fire flow of 3,500 gallons per minute or less and within 5 miles of Pender EMS and Fire Station 18, located at 11331 Hwy 17, Wilmington, NC 28411. Properties that require larger flows are individually evaluated and may vary from the listed rating per private and public fire protection.
It is imperative that you contact your insurance carrier directly regarding this rating change as soon as possible to determine how this may apply to you. A reduction in insurance ratings may mean savings for you through your homeowners insurance.
