Freeland Fire Department ISO Class 3
ISO is an acronym for Insurance Service Organization.
ISO rates fire departments on a scale of 1 through 10.
10 being the worst level of fire protection,and with 1 being the best.
ISO then publishes this rating to insurance carriers.
Many insurance companies use the ISO scale in determining rates for homeowner’s insurance.
As a matter of reference, out of 2,392 fire departments in Pennsylvania, only 155 are rated as Class 3. Also, only 16 departments are rated higher than 3.
Communities are rated from 1 -10 with one being the best and 10 allowing for no credit for fire service.
Statistical data on insurance losses bear out the relationship between excellent fire protection and low fire losses. By classifying a community’s ability to suppress fires, ISO helps the communities evaluate their public fire protection services.
The program provides an objective, countrywide standard that helps fire departments in planning and budgeting for facilities, equipment, and training. By securing lower fire insurance premiums for communities with better public protection, the PPC program provides incentives and rewards for communities that choose to improve their firefighting services.
The Freeland Fire Department is committed to saving lives and property by training firefighters, providing proper equipment, and an adequate supply of water provided by the Freeland Municipal Authority..
Members of the FFD and the FMA are understandably proud that their hard work has paid off.
