I recently received the yearly bill for my homeowner’s insurance policy. The current bill was half the cost of my bill from last year, so I called the insurer to verify that a mistake had not been made. They told me that the reason my bill had decreased such a substantial amount was due to the fact that my local fire department had received a much higher rating from whatever agency performs that task.
Therefore, I tip my hat to the firemen who work so hard to get the higher performance rating that keeps my insurance rates low. I will vote for every levy that is on the ballot to support these fine professionals.
