Related Stories

Valley Hill Fire & Rescue has been awarded a Class 3 rating from the North Carolina Department of Insurance based on such factors as proper staffing levels, sufficient equipment, proper maintenance of equipment, communications capabilities and the availability of water, Fire Chief Tim Garren announced.

The inspection, conducted by officials with Department of Insurance Office of State Fire Marshal, is required on a regular basis as part of the North Carolina Response Rating System. The Response Rating System ranges from a Class 1(highest) to a Class 10 (not recognized as a fire department by the state).

“I’d like to congratulate and thank the employees of Valley Hill Fire & Rescue,” Garren said. “Without the dedicated and highly skilled employees we have this achievement would not have been responsible."
