Engine #5 serves as a reserve pumper for our department. Insurance Service Offices rates fire departments and the water supply system to establish a fire protection class. Remington Indiana has a fire protection class of 6. A lower number is a better rating. The rating before the addition of Engine #6 was an 8. The lower rating translates to significantly lower insurance rates by 25% to 30% for all homeowners and businesses in our coverage area versus the rating before the addition of Engine #6. Eliminating Engine #5 from our available inventory or fire fighting apparatus will likely return our rating to the level prior to the addition of Engine #6.Engine #6-1998 Pierce 1500 GPM Pumper
