The Alsen Fire Department will hold a re-rating informational meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Alsen BREC Center at 601 Old Rafe Meyer Road.

Area residents are invited to attend the meeting and learn about the re-rating of the fire department by Alsen/St. Irma Lee Volunteer Fire Department Interim Fire Chief Charles Jackson.

Volunteers, board members and fire department staff will attend the meeting.

In August 2011, the Alsen/St. Irma Lee Volunteer Fire Department’s rating dropped from a Class 5 to a Class 10, the lowest possible rating. The rating by the Louisiana Property Insurance Rating Association affects the insurance premiums homeowners and businesses pay.

All Fire Board members said they will be resigning at the end of the 2013 term.
