Interesting Facts about Fire Coverage by Subscription

- Rural Metro charges $1.85 per Assessed Secondary Value - vs - Green Valley at $2.25 per Assessed Secondary Value. So the idea that fire coverage in Sahuarita 'costs more' is a myth. In fact Rural Metro is cheaper than Green Valley Fire.

- A working house fire typically requires three or more Fire Engines with three to four fire fighters per Fire Engine. For a total of three fire trucks (minimum) and nine to twelve fire fighters.  The cost for this for someone who is not subscribed would be north of $5,850 for the first hour alone! That does not even take into consideration any EMT services if someone were in the house.  None of this is covered by homeowners' insurance.

- Insurance can increase fees or even cancel your homeowner's insurance if you don't have fire coverage. Insurance premiums can increase by as much as 75% if your insurance company finds out you do not have fire coverage.
