Insurance Service Officer (ISO) Ratings

The following are the current Insurance Service Officer (ISO) Public Protection Classification (PPC) Ratings for the fire districts in Franklin County. Some departments will have two codes:

  • The first will be the rating for all areas in the respective response district that are covered with hydrants. The structures must be within 1,000 feet of a good hydrant.
  • The second number will be the rating for all structures within 5 road miles of a fire station.
  • The stations with only one number are departments without hydrants in their primary response area.

There are also areas that have a "Dry Hydrant" within two road miles of a structure. ISO will rate these, however we have not had this process completed yet. Individual insurance companies may offer reduces insurance premiums for these areas on an individual basis.
