Trevilians Volunteer Fire Department is Pleased to Announce, we are a recipient of the Dry Hydrant Grant through the Virginia Dept. Of Forestry. The Dept. Received installs of (2) new Dry Hydrants and Repair of existing Dry Hydrant in the Blue Ridge Shores Sub Division. This will hopefully help our area's ISO rating. Read Below on how ISO affects you as a homeowner.

Fire insurance premiums for each area are based on a classification by the Insurance Service
Organization (ISO). The classification depends on each area's ability to fight fires.
Areas with no fire departments are given a class 10 rating. As the fire-fighting capability increases, the
rating decreases. This can be accomplished through higher training levels, better equipment, etc. If a fire
department can demonstrate the ability to keep 250 gallons of water per minute for two hours at a fire scene,
the area's fire rating could potentially decrease to a six or seven. The ISO, however, makes the final determination
regarding the rate.
With a dry hydrant system, this goal can be easily achieved. A fire rating decrease from a nine to a
seven can often reduce insurance rates by 45 to 50 percent.
