Burn Ban Lifted

With the increasing moisture within the Central Regions of Yavapai County, and under consultation with the Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management and the Prescott National Forest, the fire ban for Clarkdale Fire District will be lifted effective:  July 14, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. The fire ban was implemented on April 18th due to the extremely dry conditions. 

 

Since that date, there have been two small fires that started within the Clarkdale Fire District.  These could have quickly grown and threatened life and property but instead were promptly extinguished due to members of the community reporting them in the early stages -  thank you for your diligence in preventing wildfire!  Press Release

New Hydrants Possibly Lower Property Insurance Rates

With the completion of the "Twin 5's" water line replacement project by the Town of Clarkdale, which included new hydrants, several properties now have a lower Public Protection Classification (PPC).  The PPC is set by Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO).  ISO evaluates communities according to a uniform set of criteria and sets the PPC.  Clarkdale Fire District has a PPC of 4/8b.  This means that the properties within the district which are within 1,000 feet of a hydrant have a PPC of 4; while properties farther than 1,000 feet from a hydrant have a PPC of 8b.  The lower the number the better.  We have had homeowners tell us that their property insurance premiums went down 30% due to the PPC for their home going from an 8b to a 4!  This is is why it is important for homeowners that have property near one of the new hydrants contact their insurance company!  Not all insurers consider the PPC in their underwriting - but many do.  Therefore, we urge all affected residents to contact their insurer.  Home owners and insurance agents may call us to verify the classification of individual properties: (928) 639-4591. 

The Town of Clarkdale has provided us with a map depicting the properties within 1,000 feet of the new hydrants. Areas shaded green already had a PPC of 4. The blue shading shows the area covered by the new hydrants.  If any part of your property has blue shading, the entire property is considered to have a PPC of 4.
