New ISO Ratings effective February 1, 2020

The new Insurance Services Ratings (ISO) Property Protection Class (PPC) rating for the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection will go into effect on February 1, 2020.

Effective February 1, 2020, the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District will be an ISO Class 2 for all hydrated areas within the fire district.  All rural areas within 1,000 feet of an approved draft hydrant will also be an ISO PPC 2.  Any areas within the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District within 5 road miles from one of our Fire Station(s) or an auto-aid station and greater than 1,000 feet from a hydrant or approved draft hydrant will be an ISO Class 4.

Areas that are outside of the above parameters may be an ISO Class 10.  Many insurance companies utilize these independent evaluations as a factor for determining property insurance rates.  Lower ISO rates may mean lower insurance premiums for our businesses and homeowners.

For more information, download the ISO Letter. You can also download the map displaying the different ISO Classes for our Fire District.
