COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island fire district officials are planning to appeal a low safety rating given to them by an insurance organization that analyzes fire protection for insurance companies nationwide.

Central Coventry Fire District officials say the low rating handed down by the Insurance Service Organization is wrong and based on incomplete and incorrect information.

The ISO notified the district it would receive a 10 - the lowest fire protection rating possible. It previously had a split rating of 5/9.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1e0NATu) an ISO rating of 10 increases average premiums by about 30 percent.

District Board President Fred Gralinski says district fire protection is better than the rating indicates and hopes to improve it. He says the appeal will delay the rating from taking effect on December 1.
