Bowling Green Fire Department Receives Highest ISO Rating

The Bowling Green Fire Department has achieved their highest Insurance Services Office Public Protection Classification rating.

The Bowling Green Fire Department is pleased to announce that we have achieved a Class 01/1X Public Protection Classification (PPC) from the Insurance Services Office (ISO), which is the highest rating we’ve achieved in our history. ISO collects and evaluates four primary categories of fire suppression – the fire department, water supply, emergency communications and community risk reduction. This accomplishment has only been achieved by 388 fire departments in the nation.

Most insurance companies use ISO’s PPC when calculating residential, commercial and industrial property premiums and an improved rating can lead to a reduction in insurance premiums. ISO analyzes data and assigns the PPC grade a number from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents an exemplary fire suppression program, and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire suppression program does not meet ISO's minimum criteria. The new rating will become effective on September 1, 2020.
