New ISO Rating Effective September 1st
At the Chief’s request, the department underwent a review for a change in our rating with the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The ISO officially changed the Carlisle Fire Department’s rating from a Class 9 to a Class 8B on September 1, 2016.
What does that mean?
A Class 8B is a Public Protection Classification (PPC™) for communities that provide superior fire protection services and fire alarm facilities but lack the water supply required for a PPC of Class 8 or better.
How does this affect me?
Your insurance company may use the ISO rating in the determination of your homeowner’s insurance rates. This increase in our rating may improve your homeowner’s insurance rates. Contact your insurance company to find out more.
