What is LCFD ISO rating?

Category: General Questions
Through the Public Protection Classification (PPC™) program, Insurance Services Office (ISO) evaluates municipal fire-protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. A community's investment in fire mitigation is a proven and reliable predictor of future fire losses. So insurance companies use PPC information to help establish fair premiums for fire insurance — generally offering lower premiums in communities with better protection. Many communities use the PPC as a benchmark for measuring the effectiveness of their fire-protection services. The PPC program is also a tool that helps communities plan for, budget, and justify improvements. The PPC is on a 1-10 scale with 1 being the best and 10 being the worst. The La Crosse Fire Department received a ISO rating of 2.
