In this informal video, Tom Weber, national director of ISO Community Hazard Mitigation, and Rick Stoll, director of product development for Verisk Insurance Solutions, discuss why a good ISO rating is important to a community’s economic health. The video is the first in ISO’s Fire and Data Conversations video series.

The ISO Community Hazard Mitigation staff visits a lot of fire departments in our quest to evaluate the quality of public fire protection for our Public Protection Classification (PPC) program.
ISO provides a wide-range of resources on Community Mitigation. On this page are articles that you will find useful and informative.
