ISO Rating

​The Department Currently holds an Insurance Services (ISO) rating of in all hydrant areas, which is considered a premium rate by most insurance companies. All non-hydrant areas hold a rating of 9. With the current number of non-sprinkler-ed buildings and those planned, along with the increase service demanded by a growing community, it will be a struggle to maintain that rating. The Trustees and the Department are committed to providing the best possible services.
