ISO classifications help establish appropriate fire insurance premiums for residential and commercial properties. Insurance companies use reliable and up-to-date information about community’s fire protection services to determine insurance premiums. The Fire District encourages our patrons to contact their insurance agent or company to assure that they are receiving full benefit of our ISO Class 2/4 rating.
