Q.   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?

     

A.   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.
