Are You Getting the Most out of PROTECTION? Here Are Some Tips!

November 11, 2013

PROTECTION is WSRB’s mostly widely used tool. It provides the location of hydrants for over 99% of Washington State, it accurately locates addresses, and it has a few other cool features that you might not have noticed.  Read on to find out more:

Fire Station Location:

–          PROTECTION will give the locations of any fire station within 10 miles of a risk and tell you if that station responds to your address or not.

  • After entering your address, simply click on the “Responding Station Addresses” link found above the Protection Class of the risk.
  • Distance to fire station

Responding fire stations

  • The information also includes station name, address, whether or not it responds to your address, station type, staffing type, and the fire district it’s located in.
  • This list opens in a new window; if you’re not seeing the list, be sure that your popup-blocker is turned off.

–          If PROTECTION cannot find your address, it will show a pink box beneath the Address Search. This box is a warning that the program found the closest address it could but to call our customer service for further help.  You can also email us at customerservice@wsrb.com.
