City of Forney, FFD awarded Class 1 ISO rating
FORNEY, TX—The City of Forney and Forney Fire Department are excited to announce that the department has been awarded a Class 1 rating by the Insurance Services Office (ISO), and organization that independently evaluates municipal fire protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. ISO ratings are assigned to communities based on scoring criteria: 50% of the score is the total classification of the fire department itself, this includes personnel and equipment; another 40% of the score is the total classification of the City’s water supply system, this includes infrastructure, water supply, water flow and pressure; the final 10% of the score is the total classification of the City’s dispatch capabilities.
There are also supplemental points given to the City because of the building code and inspection departments. A community has to contact ISO to initiate an audit. The results are then tabulated after which ISO will change the classification.
