ISO Rating – The Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating is a reflection of our fire suppression and control resources and a lower rating is a better score. Some insurance companies use the ISO rating to set homeowner’s insurance rates. A lower ISO rating may reduce insurance premiums for some homeowners. In early 2013, the city was notified that our ISO rating be lowered from a 5 to a 3.
