Fire Underwriters Survey

Underwriters Map

Property owners in communities with accredited Superior Tank Shuttle Service are eligible for improved property insurance rates similar to those in communities with municipal-type water supply systems.  

Fire Underwriters Survey does not set property insurance rates, however the organization is responsible for publishing the Canadian Fire Insurance Grading Index which is used by insurers across Canada to base insurance rates upon.  

Fire Underwriters Survey is recognized by the Insurance Bureau of Canada as being the only organization authorized to publish fire insurance grades in Canada.
