The Municipal Division evaluates the fire protection capabilities of municipalities and fire districts to determine a Protection Classification for that graded area. The Municipal Division also evaluates the effectiveness of the Building Code Enforcement of municipalities and parishes to determine the Building Code Effectiveness Grading (BCEG) classification. We provide municipal officials, such as fire, water and building departments, with information and advice concerning factors which can affect property insurance ratings.

For an overview of Protection Class and BCEGS gradings and other documentation, please see the “Publications” section of our website.
