UPFD holds ISO Class 1 rating for fire protection

UPFD holds a ISO Class 1 rating, the highest Public Protection Classification (PPC) awarded by the Insurance Services Office (ISO).  According to the latest ISO report, less than one percent of  municipalities in the United States have a Class 1 rating. 

ISO is an advisory organization that serves the property and casualty insurance industry by providing inspection and statistical services.  A Class 1 rating means that University Park enjoys a level of fire protection that is second to none.  Additionally, as a result of the classification homeowners and businesses in the city continue to have comparably lower property insurance rates. 

Throughout the nation, ISO classifies communities on a 1 to 10 scale.  To earn an ISO Class 1 rating, municipalities must demonstrate they possess the best systems for water distribution, fire department equipment, firefighting personnel, and fire notification dispatch facilities.
