Windsor Township Emergency Services Rating Improves
After an evaluation of the fire department capabilities by the Insurance Service Office (ISO) out of Chicago Illinois, Windsor Township Emergency Services effective on October 1, 2014 has improved its rating down to a class 5/10. This means that if your Windsor Township residence is within 5 road miles of the station located at 300 W. Jefferson St in Dimondale, you will be an ISO Class 5.
ISO evaluates the fire department based on personnel responses, vehicles that are in service, equipment, training of your department members, records, water supply capabilities, mutual and automatic aid agreements.
Many insurance companies utilize the ISO rating when figuring your home owners insurance. If this is done incorrectly with either the wrong ISO rating or wrong department then it could cost up to a few hundred dollars more in premiums. It would be worth your time to find out from your insurance agent if your homeowners insurance carrier utilizes the ISO Rating schedule and to make sure they have the proper ISO rating for Windsor Township Emergency Services. If you have any questions about the ISO rating or if you are in an eligible area please contact Chief Phil Miller @ 517-646-0893.

At the October 23, 2012 Windsor Township Board of Trustees meeting it was approved by the Board to have the Emergency Services Department to start charging for certain Fire Division responses starting January 1, 2013.
Effective January 1, 2013 Windsor Charter Township will begin billing for the following services: Structure fires $500.00, Vehicle fires $500.00, Traffic Accidents $300.00, False Alarm Up to $1,000.00, Burn Permits $25.00 (annual fee, valid from January 1st – December 31st) and Illegal Burning/negligent burns/no permit Up to $1,000.00.
Chief Phil Miller said that “many of the traffic related incidents involve non township residents which put’s a burden on local finances”. “One way to correct this is to start a billing program”. If an insurance company does not cover the fee’s, the motorist will be billed themselves, only if they are non-township residents. Under the new permit process, a township resident will need to go to the Windsor Township Hall or the Emergency Services building to fill out the permit and receive a copy of the burning ordinance. Permits may be obtained at the Township Office, 405 W. Jefferson St., at a cost of $25 per calendar year. The permit is valid from January 1 until December 31st and needs to be renewed every year. Once the permit has been approved, a permitted township resident only has to call the emergency services building Monday thru Saturday between 7am and 4pm (517) 646-0893 and activate the permit. A single call activates the permit for seven days instead of 1-4 days under the old permit process. A permit is still not needed for recreational campfires or burning cardboard and papers within an approved burn barrel.
The Village of Dimondale’s current open burning ordinance which prohibits open burning other than campfires is unaffected by this change.
A copy of the Township's new burning ordinance is available here. Please direct any questions to Chief Phil Miller, 517-646-0893.
