At the IAFC Fire-Rescue International, held in August 2009 in Dallas, Chief Billy Goldfeder conducted a “Through the Smoke” podcast titled “What Do You Know About ISO?” for Firehouse.com. Chief Goldfeder’s guests were Mike Waters, ISO’s vice president of Risk Decision Services, and Robert “Butch” Cobb, ISO’s director of Community Hazard Mitigation. The purpose of the podcast was to discuss the positive results of improved fire-protection efforts and ISO’s commitment to assisting communities with fire-protection challenges. We’d like to encourage you to listen to Chief Goldfeder’s podcast.

“The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) is pleased to congratulate ISO on their inaugural issue of Community Fire Protection News.  ISO has recently set the stage for a new era of cooperation with the fire and emergency service and the communities it serves. This newsletter is just another example of the new ways ISO is developing resources and practical tools with and for the fire service. However, this work cannot be sustained without an equal commitment by fire service leaders to stay informed, understand the issues, and provide practical and timely feedback into the process. Together we can make the difference.”
