The Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule (BCEGS) assesses the building codes in effect in the Cushing community and how the community enforces its building codes, with special emphasis on mitigation of losses from natural hazards.
The concept is simple: municipalities with well-enforced, up-to-date codes should demonstrate better loss experience, and insurance rates can reflect that. The prospect of lessening catastrophe-related damage and ultimately lowering insurance costs provides an incentive for communities to enforce their building codes rigorously especially as they relate to windstorm damage.
