The type of fire department, wMch irlndes equipment and nmnber and extent of training of firemen, plus the ,type of wat I system in a town or city determines the :insurance rates. Presently Oheney hs a class 6 rating, Medical Lake, class 8 and Airway Heights, ckass 9. Class is determined by the Washington Survey and Rating Bureau. Airway Heights missed the upgrade to 8 by about two points because of inadequate equipment. This would ,have meart a savings of 10 to 30 pea" cent on resMentia,1 insurance premiums The fire fighting crew was given ,an excellent rating in training and school- ing.
