ISO Rating

Beginning April 1, 2016, the Insurance Services Office is changing Roanoke’s Public Protection Classification (ISO Rating) from a 4 to a 02/2X.  All rated properties served by Roanoke that are within five miles of the fire station and 1000’ feet of a fire hydrant will use Class 02. Other protected areas served by Roanoke that are within five miles of the fire station but more than 1000’ from a fire hydrant will be rated a 2X.  

The Insurance Services Office is an independent organization that surveys a community’s fire protection capabilities and assigns a rating of 1-10.  A rating of one indicates outstanding fire protection capabilities while a rating of ten indicates unacceptable fire protection services.

The Public Protection Classification (PPC) is the countrywide classification system used by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) to grade a community's local fire protection. Most Insurance companies utilize this grade when calculating fire insurance premiums.

For questions concerning Roanoke’s ISO classification, please call our Fire Administration offices at: 817-491-2301.
