Lilliwaup Skokomish urc ear ISSIO MASON COUNTY 4-H horse project members spent three days at the Fair Grounds last week getting instruction from several persons on the care and handling of their horses. Among those who worked with the young people were Dr. Joe Johnson from Washington State University and Jim Taylor of Olympia. Here, some of the participants in the game groom their horses. L mer c The Lake Limerick Fire Station, Station 4 of Fire Protection District 5, has been accepted by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau for recognition as providing 8th class fire protection. The effective date of this action is June 1. As a general rule on residences this will mean a reduction in fire insurance premiums as follows: Within 2 miles of the fire station about 50 per cent; within five miles but over two miles about 30 per cent. This may vary somewhat between insurance companies, type of policy, how old insurance policy is and so forth. On Homeowners policies, for instance, remember this applies only to that portion of premium Ire which is being paid for fire insurance. Also, some insurance companies may be slow to recognize this new protection. However, if an insurance company is reluctant to recognize this new rate, it should be pointed out to them the savings which are available from other companies and chances are they will meet the competitive rate. Commercial properties also will benefit from this improved fire protection (however, commercial properties are rated on an individual or case by case bases.) Although the premium reduction may not be as great, generally, it will be a substantial percentage. This reduction applies only to IS rl properties within the boundaries of Fire Protection District 5. Persons having insured properties in this area should contact their insurance agent and ask for an exact quotation. This rating is due in large part to a very active group of volunteers. There are openings for five additional volunteers at Station 4. Drills start at 7 p.m. every Tuesday evening. Anyone who is getting bored with TV, wanting to get some exercise, looking for a hobby, wanting to learn something new and interesting, or just wanting to help, should give this a try. District 5 has a very active program of training in all phases of fire protection, rescue, and first aid. It should be pointed out that the quarters being used as a fire station are being provided on a temporary basis by the Lake Limerick Golf and Country Club which is allowing the use of a portion of their maintenance shop building. Anyone wishing more information should call Capt. Glenn Robbins at 426-6953 or Capt. Tom Brokaw at 426-3864. Do not call the Fire Department Emergency number unless you have an emergency (fire, first aid, etc.) To call from 426 phones for an emergency dial operator and ask for ZENITH 8311.
