ISO Rating

The Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO) evaluates fire departments in the United States. Based on this evaluation, they assign a rating between 1 and 10 for each department — 1 being the best and 10 being the worst. This rating can effect how much property insurance you pay for your home or business.  In 2016 we had our ISO rating reevaluated, and below are the results of this evaluation.

  • A property within 5 miles of a fire station (either our station or the station of a department we have auto aid with) and 1000 feet or less from a fire hydrant is classified as a 05.
  • A property within 5 miles of a fire station (either our station or the station of a department we have auto aid with) and more than 1000 feet from a fire hydrant is classified as a 6.
  • A property outside of 5 miles of a fire station (either our station or the station of a department we have auto aid with) is classified as a 10.

We currently have automatic aid agreements with Cutlerville, Dorr Twp, Jamestown Twp, and Leighton Twp, so the majority of our response area has either an 05 or 6 rating.
