Criteria for Deployment Analysis of Companies

To reduce property damage from a fire, firefighters need to get to the scene quickly. Therefore, ISO evaluates the deployment of fire stations in each community.

For full credit in the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS), the fire protection area with residential and commercial properties should have a first-due engine company within 1.5 road miles and a ladder service company within 2.5 road miles.

If there is a separate performance evaluation demonstrating that the deployment of companies meets the general criteria of NFPA 1710, ISO will use that information as an alternative to a road-mile-based evaluation.
