Welcome to Community Fire Protection News...
Welcome to Community Fire Protection News, ISO’s online newsletter for concise and topical fire protection information, tips for navigating ISO websites, relevant industry news, and more. There’s a new fire scenario in the section “You Make the Call.” Let us know your fireground answers. Also, take a look at the responses from the fire scenario in our last issue. As a user of Fire Chiefs Online or ISO Mitigation Online, you may already know ISO. But if you’re new to ISO, please take a look and explore the links. Then, join us in our quest to mitigate the risks of losses from fire in municipalities around the country. The nation’s fire departments face challenges in staffing, recruiting, and training; mutual aid and collaboration; and water supply. In the battle against property loss, fire department officials around the country can be confident that ISO is an objective source for information and technical support. ISO’s PPC™ program provides a useful road map and economic incentives that can help local officials make the best available choices for improving local fire protection.
