"Kat" while your attempt at trying to take the high road is admirable, you really should get your facts 100% correct if you are going to speak about facts. I do not have the time or patients to correct all of your "FACTS." But I have to point out that when you state that Wrightsboro VFD has a district wide 5, you are simply incorrect. Please feel free to check this. Wrightsboro does have a district wide 6, the same as Castle Hayne VFD. Myrtle Grove VFD has a split 5/9. None of these VFDs accomplished ANY reduction in insurance rates until the county staff stepped in and drove the ISO rating reduction for each of the stations.
Since you are so informed about the facts you speak of, I should not have to explain to you why having 6 stations in the SAME northen district, being able to collectively count all of their apparatus, staff (both paid and volunteer), and equipment would pay dividends in re-rating the districts in the future for a lower rating district wide.
Please do not take this an attack on you, just get your facts straight. By the way, how is Coastal Carolina Community College treating you these days?
