ISO 1级部门

ISO stands for Insurance 海洋之神登录入口 Office. 这是一群训练有素的人, professional evaluators that evaluate municipal fire protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. Points for everything from training, 供水系统, emergency dispatch capabilities, 装置, 呼叫量, response times and more are thoroughly assessed and rated. The audits which determine the ratings occur every five years. ISO analyzes the relevant data using the 火 Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). The purpose of ISO is to give insurance companies a uniform system on which to base their insurance premiums. By classifying a community’s ability to suppress fires, ISO also helps the community evaluate their public fire protection services. The final rating ranges from Class 1 (superior fire protection) to 10 (minimal fire protection). Historically, very few cities receive the coveted “Class 1” rating. 在近50个,000 rated cities across the United States, less than one half of 1% of cities receive a “Class 1” rating. During its 2016 audit, the 西萨克拉门托市 received a “Class 1” rating. A “Class 1A” was also awarded to the rural area, which is the highest rural rating available. As insurance companies typically utilize the classification to assist in determining premiums, the new classification has the potential for financial savings for homeowners and business owners alike.
