Good news for the Lucas residents (I am one of them): our insurance rates might go down a little bit in the next year!
Fire protection in the City of Lucas is about to receive one of the highest Public Protection Classification ratings awarded by the Insurance Services Office and approved by Texas Department of Insurance. The City of Lucas Joins about 284 other communities in in texas with a Class 2 rating. Prior to this, Lucas had a rating of a Class 3.
This Fire-Rescue achievement means better fire protection and potentially lower property insurance rates for homeowners and businesses in the Lucas Fire-rescue service area.
With the new Class 2 rating, all properties located within 5 miles of a fire station and within 1,000 feets of a hydrant, will receive the Class 2 Rating. Properties located within 5 miles of a fire station, but outside the 1,000 feets of a fire hydrant will receive a 2X rating.
