Vermont Homeowners Insurance & The Fire Station

So what does the location of my Vermont home have to do with the fire station?

Most insurance companies will ask the proximity of your home to the nearest fire station or fire hydrant. The closer together they are the cheaper the insurance.

The theory behind this is, if there were to be a fire, the closer the house is to the fire station, the faster the response time and the less damage done to the house.

Often, your insurance agent will ask you how far the house is from the fire station and if you are like most new home buyers, you don’t have any idea. This link shows the name and address of all Vermont fire departments. After locating the fire department for your town, you can map the distance from your house to the fire station.
