Roselle Mayor Jamel C. Holley today released an independent insurance assessment that shows the borough has strengthened its infrastructure to better combat fires.
The "Public Protection Classification Summary Report", produced through the Insurance Services Offices, Inc. in Marlton, offers a comprehensive assessment of the borough's ability to fight fires, from studying the local water pressure to studying the effectiveness of each fire hydrant in town.
"Over the past several years, we have made an incredibly concentrated effort to review and upgrade how firefighting services are delivered in Roselle," Holley said. "This new classification shows that Roselle is safer and better equipped when it comes to fighting fires, while providing even better support for neighboring towns during emergencies. Holley said homeowner insurance companies look at these grades in compiling rates,nnoting then new classification may be a savings for borough property owners.
