Welcome to Community Fire Protection News...
Welcome to Community Fire Protection News, our online newsletter for the fire service, insurers, building officials, water professionals, and emergency responders. We provide concise, topical community mitigation and insurance news and more.
In this issue, we discuss what it takes to earn a PPC® Class 1 rank in an interview with Chief Randy Bruegman of Anaheim Fire & Rescue, a Class 1 department in California. His experience and advice will prove invaluable to other fire services. As part of our joint focus on community outreach and service, we discuss how ISO, as one of Verisk’s many businesses, allows you access to a variety of services around the world. Then, we explore the many classes and programs ISO offers for training and community outreach. You’ll see the official unveiling of new ISO seal artwork for Class 1, 2, and 3 departments to use to publicize their rank. In a guest article originally published in Fire Engineering®, EMS Captain Jeremy Hurd, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, writes about the tragedy and loss that’s part of fire service. Finally, “you make the call” to tell us how effectively ISO is communicating with you.
This issue includes many industry updates and insights. We hope you’ll find our latest information useful in your own efforts to keep people and property safe against fire and other catastrophes.
