Winfield Building Codes Result in Potential Insurance Credits for New Development
January 6, 2017
The City of Winfield recently completed a Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule (BCEGS) survey. The audit was completed by Insurance Services Office, Inc (ISO), an insurer-supported organization that collects and provides underwriting information to insurers. The survey is designed to score the effectiveness of building code enforcement activities within a community as they are related to reducing losses from natural disasters.
Previously, the City of Winfield held a rating that indicated no building code program was in place. Nearly three years of preparation and implementation of building codes and inspection activities has resulted in the City establishing and lowering its rating by two points. Winfield's new rating of a 9 will be stored in ISO's database and provided to insurers writing policies for any buildings constructed in 2016 or later, allowing them access to credits toward their premiums.
"This is an important step for our community as we continue working to make Winfield an attractive place for people to build new homes and businesses," said Mayor Ruckel in a statement. "It's important that I recognize Tim Ens, our City Inspector, for the countless hours and patience he has dedicated to helping us expand our program and achieve this goal."
In February of 2016, ISO lowered the City's Public Protection Class (PPC) rating through a separate survey completed for the Winfield Foley Fire Protection District. The lower PPC resulted in the opportunity for many of its existing home and business owners to receive reductions in insurance premiums. Mayor Ruckel says City Officials continue to evaluate opportunities to improve its BCEGS and PPC ratings during future surveys.

New ISO Rating for Winfield-Foley Fire Protection District
The Winfield Foley Fire Protection District recently completed an evaluation with the Insurance Services Office (ISO) and has learned that the City of Winfield’s fire protection rating has been lowered from a 7 to 6. This positive change will likely mean insurance premium savings for many local home and business owners.
WFFPD volunteer firefighters, Winfield maintenance workers, and County Dispatch employees have spent a great deal of time and effort focusing on responder resources, response efficiency, and availability of water supply in an effort to better their rating. A lot of work goes into lowering a department’s rating, including extensive evaluation of equipment, fire hydrant locations, fire station coverage, training programs and attendance, and code enforcement activities.
According to ISO, the 6 rating will go into effect on April 1, 2016. Since each insurance company makes use of this rating through their own internal policies, it is recommended that anyone interested should contact their insurance providers directly to determine what the impact will be on their premiums.
ISO is an insurance advisory organization that provides risk information to insurance companies. Through its Public Protection Classification (PPC) program, ISO evaluates municipal fire-protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. The PPC ratings given are a culmination of many evaluated factors, and provide a benchmark for measuring the effectiveness of fire services in the area.
We’d like to offer a big thank you to the firefighters, dispatchers, and public works personnel that work very hard every day to ensure our fire department’s efficiency. Your efforts to improve the City of Winfield’s PPC rating and help to lower insurance premiums for our home and business owners do not go un-noticed. “Our hats off” to each and every one of you!
