Countys new ISO rating could mean lower insurance premiums
Placeholder Image
Results from a recent evaluation by the Insurance Services Offices places Dawson County in a lower insurance classification, which should translate into lower insurance premiums for many county residents. Dawson County Emergency Services Director Lanier Swafford said he was pleased with the county's new 3/10 ISO classification, down from a 5/10 in 2010. "I feel very good about the grade, but what I will say is this, it proves to us that those people who are not within the five road miles, we have a bigger obligation now to try to find a way to get them fire protection," he said.
