White paper: The Distance Fallacy in Fire Protection

Verisk research shows that for one in five addresses, the closest fire station is not the first one to respond in an emergency. Insurers need a better way to measure how local fire protection affects the risk of loss for a property. Our new study shows:

  • the significant differences between a purely distance-based measure of fire protection and a more holistic approach
  • how a better measure of fire protection can drive more accurate pricing
  • the impact of using an array of characteristics that distinguish each community’s fire protection and its relative ability to prevent and fight fires
