Fire ratings continue to improve in Harrison County

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Another section of Harrison County now has an improved fire rating. Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said the Canal Road fire protection area now has a Class 6 fire rating. That means home and business owners in the area will likely qualify for lower fire insurance costs.

"Protecting lives and property is our primary concern," Sullivan said. "The secondary is to do things that we're doing and working with these other departments to get people to realize that Harrison County is somewhere they want to live. Harrison County is somewhere they want to move. Harrison County is somewhere they want to bring their business."

The affected area includes east of Canal Road to the Gulfport city limits to Highway 53 on the north and Landon Road on the south.
