Susanville FD Acheives High Marks in Fire Suppression Protection Rating


Susanville Fire Department’s Insurance Services Office, or ISO rating, achieves a rating that is the equivalent of a B grade for fire suppression protection. A considerable improvement from past years. The department now joins the ranks of 158 fire agencies and communities throughout the state to have the same classification. ISO ratings have an impact on your homeowners insurance rates. If you own a home or business within city limits you can contact your insurance company and let them know of the Public Protection Classification change to 2/2Y. The improved rating is a direct result of improvements to the Susanville Fire Department and water infrastructure system. Yet to maintain this higher rating it is essential that staffing and service levels remain at their current status.
