Fenton, MO -- April 1, 2016 -- The Fenton Fire Protection District is proud to announce the Insurance Services Office (ISO) has awarded the district a Class 1 Public Protection Classification rating effective April 1, 2016.
The Fenton Fire Protection District is currently the only agency in the State of Missouri to enjoy this extraordinary rating for fire protection. The Class 1 rating is the highest score awarded to fire protection agencies in the United States and represents the best possible fire protection services. Less than 160 of the 48,000 rated fire protection agencies in the United States are rated Class 1.
ISO ratings are used by insurance companies in the establishment of commercial and residential insurance rates. The rating is based on a detailed evaluation of the district’s operations, water supplies, emergency communications center, and community risk reduction.
The district’s improvement to an ISO Class 1 was facilitated by the processes addressed through the accreditation by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) and through the dedicated efforts of the firefighters, paramedics, chief officers, and staff of the Fenton Fire Protection District, Missouri American Water Company, and Central County Emergency 911.
