Fire department ISO rate upgraded

Contact your insurance carrier to see if it impacts you.

Graafschap Fire Department is proud to announce that we have been upgraded from an ISO 5/10 to an ISO 4/10, effective November 1, 2023.

ISO stands for Insurance Services Office (ISO), which is an independent, for-profit organization. The ISO scores fire departments on how they are doing against its organization’s standards to determine property insurance costs. Since the ISO fire ratings are used by property insurance companies to set insurance premium rates, the lower the ISO fire rating, the lower the insurance premium. The 4 represents properties within 5 road miles from the fire station and 1,000 feet from a credible water source. The 10 represents properties that are beyond 5 miles.

Please contact your insurance carrier, you may be eligible for a better rate.
