Fire Department

Rated ISO Class III

What is an ISO Rating?

The Insurance Service Office (ISO) issues ratings to fire departments throughout the country for the effectiveness of their fire protection services and equipment to protect their community. The ISO rating is a numerical grading system and is one of the primary elements used by the insurance industry to develop premium rates for residential and commercial businesses.

Class 1 generally represents superior property fire protection and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire suppression program does not meet ISO's minimum criteria. Out of 1,145 fire departments in Georgia, only 17% of those have an ISO rating of 4 or better.

Your homeowners insurance rates are based on many factors such as your credit rating, your fire department’s ISO class, and your previous losses.

This department protects lives and property through fire suppression, first responder medical services, disaster management, fire prevention and public safety education.
