Clarification about insurance rates

5/5/2014

Some insurance ratings in a story in Sunday's issue were incorrect.

The ratings are on a scale of 1 to 10, with the lower the rating, the better.

The rural fire company in Schoenchen remained a 7 rating.

The rural fire company in Victoria received a 6/10 rating. The 6 is for within 5 miles of the city limits, and the 10 is for beyond 5 miles. Anyone outside the city limits, but within 1,000 feet of a hydrant, the rating is a 5.

Company 5 in Hays also received a 6/10. If a home or business is within water supply of the city of Hays where hydrants are located, the rating is a 5.

The rural fire department in Ellis is rated 7/10. If within 1,000 feet of a hydrant, the rating is a 5.

The Hays Daily News apologizes for the error.
