ISO Rating & Insurance Premiums

May 30, 2017

As your Fire Chief, I have been made aware some insurance providers did not change to the new ISO PPC rating for the District and continue to rate properties based on the old ISO PPC Rating of 5/9, which expired March 31, 2016. Effective April 1, 2016 the District’s new ISO PPC Rating of 2/4/10W became effective and is what each of your home and business policies should be rated on, if you are covered by a company using ISO. There are insurance companies that do not use the ISO Rating.

The District invested considerable time, effort, and tax dollars, with your support, to achieve the new ISO PPC Rating of 2/4/10W on April 1, 2016. This was made possible partially by the 2012 Operations and Staffing Levy and the 2015 General Obligation Bond. The 2012 Operations and Staffing Levy provides the needed 24/7 Career Firefighter/Paramedics, while the 2015 General Obligation Bond provided the new fleet. We at SLCFR want to see all of our patrons get full value for what we have achieved together.

We encourage everyone to go to the following link on our webpage and download the ISO letters and present them to your insurance carrier. If you find your carrier does not utilize or recognize ISO, we encourage you to exercise the freedom to shop the market. I have heard many accounts where folks have called their carrier, presented the information, and received a lower rate or refund. While I cannot provide advice or endorse a particular product or company, I can encourage you to take advantage of the free markets and your right to choose.

On behalf of our entire organization, I thank you for the great support we receive. It is our sincerest hope this PSA provides you with helpful and useful information regarding your home or business policy for fire protection. The link for our webpage where the ISO information and rating letters may be found is;

Thank you for your continued support,
