ISO Community Hazard Mitigation has an ongoing program in place to actively work with fire departments on Public Protection Classification (PPC®) and Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) education. As part of this effort, representatives from ISO have been conducting presentations on Tuesday evenings during the “Additional Learning Opportunity” available to students attending the National Fire Academy (NFA) in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

Communities embrace new CRR section of FSRS

The revised ISO Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS), which identifies criteria used to assess a community’s fire protection services, now provides extra credit for community risk reduction (CRR) activities.

ISO Fire Suppression Rating Schedule

Our Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) is free to chiefs and other fire officials. It's a manual containing the criteria Verisk uses in reviewing the fire prevention and fire suppression capabilities of individual communities or fire protection areas. To recieve a copy of the FSRS, contact our National Processing Center at 1-800-444-4554 and select Option 2.

H2O and Verisk

Water supply and distribution systems are important factors in determining a community’s ISO Public Protection Classification (PPC®). We provide complimentary educational training and seminars to water providers and associations throughout the country. Contact Hugh Gibson, national water resources manager, at hugh.gibson@verisk.com for more information.
