Sep 10, 2002 – CDS Business Mapping, has announced that Protection Class codes for Mississippi are now available through its Risk Meter Online mapping service. Using the service, an insurer or agent can type in an address, and get back the correct protection class for that exact street address in real time. Property insurers to underwrite virtually all property risks use protection Classes. For most companies, this is a frustrating, time consuming manual task. Identifying the responding fire district and protection class for a given location can take upwards of 10 minutes. With the Risk Meter, it takes only seconds! In addition to Protection Class, the Risk Meter Online does many additional types of lookups, including distance to coast, wind pool eligibility, earthquake information, brush fire hazards, and many more.
