Many of ICMSA’s fire hydrants are ISO rated. What is ISO? ISO is a service that provides rating and other services to property and casualty insurance industries. The goal is to recognize the impact that public fire protection has on individual homeowner’s property fire rates given that fire protection can affect the percentage of loss value that could be expected in the event of a fire. ISO's main criteria are performance-oriented, meaning ratings are largely based on the quantity of water a fire department crew can flow and the duration of the water flow.
If you have a fire hydrant near your property, be sure to contact your insurance carrier to see if you qualify for a savings on your homeowner’s insurance.
