Scores and PPC™ Ratings

ISO’s Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) lists a large number of items a community should have to fight fires effectively and assigns credit points for each item. Using those credit points and various formulas, ISO calculates a total score on a scale of 0 to 105.5.

To receive certain Public Protection Classification (PPC™) ratings, a community must meet minimum criteria:

After a community meets those criteria, the PPC depends on the community’s score on the 100-point scale:

1 90.00 or more
2 80.00 to 89.99
3 70.00 to 79.99
4 60.00 to 69.99
5 50.00 to 59.99
6 40.00 to 49.99
7 30.00 to 39.99
8 20.00 to 29.99
9 10.00 to 19.99
10 0.00 to 9.99
