I have heard that something called an ISO rating can affect the  cost of my homeowners insurance. What is this ISO rating I hear being discussed?

     

Each community is evaluated on the basis of many factors for their ability to prevent and combat fires in their area. The testing agency is the nsurance ervices ffice. The ISO number is a "score"  that represents a communities readiness to prevent and combat fires. The lower the number, the better. Your FGFD 

        continues to work hard to maintain the lowest rating possible.
