灭火等级表(FSRS)

ISO是一个独立的统计数据, rating, and advisory organization that serves the property/casualty insurance industry. ISO collects information on a community's public fire protection and analyzes the data using the 灭火等级表(FSRS). ISO then assigns a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents exemplary public protection and Class 10 indicates less than minimum recognized protection. Peach County Lowered its ISO rating from a class 5/9 to a class 4 in December of 2017, which allows Peach County residents to feel safer with the advantage of lower insurance rates. Peach County is continually striving to lower our ISO rating for the tax payers of Peach County.
