Press Release: LVFPD Receives ISO Public Protection Classification 2

Lake Valley Fire Protection District is proud to announce that effective September 1, 2014, the community served by the Fire District will have an ISO Public Protection Classification of 2 in areas with fire hydrants and 2Y for rural portions of the Fire District without fire hydrants.  The Fire District worked diligently over the last few years to reduce their community’s rating from a 5 to a 2. The Fire District is one of only 750 fire departments in the entire country to receive this designation.

The ramification of the new Public Protection Classification should be a significant reduction in fire insurance rates for all properties within Fire District boundaries.  Lake Valley Fire Protection District, Fire Chief Gareth Harris announced that “I am extremely proud of our hard working men and women who contributed countless hours towards reducing the risk rating for the community we proudly serve."

The Insurance Services Office, Inc. better known as ISO, is a company that serves insurance companies by evaluating communities all over the country and assigning a risk classification ranging from the lowest risk being 1 to the highest being a 10. They rate communities based on three criteria: The fire department’s capabilities, the firefighting water supply, and the emergency communications capability.
