West Pulaski Fire Department is pleased to announce that our ISO Public Protection Rating will change from an ISO Class 5/6 to an ISO Class 4 for all property owners living 5 road miles from a WPFD fire station, beginning February 1, 2019.
WPFD continues to improve our services and has invested in equipment, training, and capabilities to serve our communities better. We are proud of this improved rating and we will work harder to continue improvements that get us to an even better future rating.
ISO Class Ratings
- Class 4 – Will apply for any property owners that live within 5 road miles of a WPFD fire station.
- Class 10– For property owners that live greater than 5 road miles of a WPFD fire station the ISO assigns still assigns a fire protection class of 10.
WPFD encourages you to contact your insurance provider or the Insurance Services Office about how this rating impacts your insurance coverage and costs. A decrease (which is an improvement) can lead to a decrease in insurance premiums if your insurance company uses the ISO PPC in their rating formula.
