Changes in the built environment and the contents of structures are creating new challenges on the front lines of firefighting. That’s the reality that firefighters and emergency services personnel are facing. It’s a story that municipal officials, residents, and insurers need to know and understand to help build safer communities and reduce fire loss.

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 ISO uses in reviewing the fire prevention and fire suppression capabilities of individual communities or fire protection areas. Go to Fire Chiefs Online to access your complimentary copy of the FSRS. If you're not yet registered, register here.
