Tullos town officials learned at their regular October meeting held Monday night of last week that PIAL (Property Insurance Association of Louisiana) has raised the fire rating for the town and adjoining area to a Class 10, the highest possible classification. The former rating for the town was a Class 6 and for out-of-town the rating was a Class 9.

The new higher rating means homeowners and businesses in the area will face higher premiums on their property insurance.

“The PIAL inspection on September 6 was a painful blow to the department and the town,” Paul Doughty, secretary for the Tullos Volunteer Fire Department, said. “Lack of membership and lack of documented training hours was the overriding reason for the rating increase. The cure for our rating is for people to join the department and make the training meetings.”
