Agenda Posted at Headquarters station and on the departments web site on November 10, 2016:




Cherokee Springs Fire Department

201 Flatwood Drive

Chesnee SC 29323



November 2, 2016

Cherokee Springs Fire District, (Spartanburg County) residents soon may enjoy lower homeowner’s insurance premiums thanks to an improved fire protection rating recently achieved by the Fire Department.

Cherokee Springs Fire Department’s Public Protection Classification (PPC) that sets the fire districts Insurance Services Office (ISO) fire protection score, a number used to determine local property insurance ratings reflecting a community’s local fire protection, recently improved from a classification 5/9 to a 2/2X.

The report rates community fire departments from Class 10 to Class 1, with Class 1 being the highest.

Cherokee Springs Fire Chief Trent Harper presented the PPC report to the Fire District Board of Commissioners, explaining that CSFD’s Class 2/2X rating was based on an evaluation of the fire department’s ability to respond to calls inside the fire district, within five miles of one of the fire districts fire stations, located at the following locations:

  •          Headquarters Station 201Flatwood Drive
  •          Sandy Ford Road Station 870 Sandy Ford Road
  •          Mountain View Station 325 Mountain View Road.

According to the report, a community’s ISO rating is based on getting adequate water flow and supply for fire suppression, emergency communications, and the fire department’s equipment, staff, training, operations and community risk reduction outreach program.

Chief Harper commended Spartanburg County Emergency communications department Director Mike Flynn, which made up 10 percent of the rating, and the fire districts two water department, Spartanburg Water and Liberty Chesnee Fingerville which made up 40 percent of the rating.

The fire department made up the remaining 50 percent of the rating, which should translate to insurance premium savings for area residents.

It is up to each individual insurance company to set premiums based on the Class 2/2X rating, and we encouraged people to check with their insurance companies. “We all should see savings within the entire community,” Chief Harper said.

The new ISO ratings take effect November 1, 2016 Harper said.

Chief Harper stated he would like to personally express his appreciations to Cherokee Springs Fire District Board of Commissioner’s for adopting goals to improve the fire districts ISO grade, support and trust given to the administration to develop programs and implement policies to achieve the goal. Chief Harper praised the dedication and team work of all the firefighters and officers that worked tirelessly to accomplish to improve the Fire Districts ISO Score.
