Piedmont Park Fire currently receives an ISO Class 1 rating from the Insurance Service Office (ISO)

   

The Insurance Services Office (ISO) completed its current assessment for Piedmont Park Fire District.

It was announced at our annual Christmas Party on December 8th, 2018 that Piedmont Park Fire received an ISO class 1 rating. There are approximately 50,000 fire departments surveyed in the United States, with 1% sharing the rating of ISO class 1.

When ISO evaluates a fire department’s capabilities it uses a system called the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) which employs nationally accepted standards developed by such organizations as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the American Water Works Association (AWWA), and the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials (APCO) International. The FSRS considers three main areas of the community’s fire suppression capabilities including emergency communications (911 call center), the fire department, and water supply. In addition, it includes a Community Risk Reduction section that recognizes community efforts to reduce losses through fire prevention, public fire safety education, and fire investigation

Key elements considered when evaluating a fire department include response capabilities which include adequate staffing of fire service personnel on fire apparatus, fire station distribution (location and coverage), appropriate apparatus and equipment, training, water supply, organizational structure, communications, and building/fire prevention codes and their enforcement.
