East Side Fire District is pleased to announce an improvement in the Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating for designated member properties within the District.

The Idaho Survey & Rating Bureau recently classified the District’s new fireboat as a Mobil Drafting Site, enabling a PPC rating reduction from 8 to 4 for East Side Fire District member structures within 1,000 feet of the shoreline and within 5 miles of the fireboat moorage location in Martin Bay.

PPC ratings reflect fire suppression capabilities within fire districts and are used by many insurance companies to determine both scope and cost of coverage. The new rating went into effect Jan. 10.

Fire Chief Dan Currie commented, “This rating improvement is a direct result of our fireboat’s water pumping capabilities combined with the operational expertise of our personnel to quickly provide a high volume of water to apparatus supporting fire suppression for structures close to the shoreline. We are very pleased to provide this improved level of fire protection for our members.”

For further eligibility information, East Side Fire District member property owners may contact East Side Fire District at 208-769-4269 from 8 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, or have their insurance companies contact the Idaho Rating & Survey Bureau at 208-343-5483. Non-member property owners may contact East Side Fire District directly for membership petition information to secure fire protection required to take advantage of the rating improvement.

East Side Fire District covers over 90 square miles on the east side of Lake Coeur d’Alene from Beauty Creek to the Coeur d’Alene River.
