The Insurance Services Office (ISO) evaluates local fire departments and formulates protection classifications which are used by many insurance companies for property insurance calculations. The classification scale runs from Class 1, the highest, to Class 10.
The Johnson County Fire Protection District maintains a split ISO rating of 5/6/10.
The ratings apply as follows:
Applies to properties in the District within five road miles of a District fire station and within 1,000 feet of a Missouri American, Chilhowee or Leeton water system hydrant and with a needed fire flow of 3,500 gallons per minute or less.
Applies to properties in the District within five road miles of a District fire station, but beyond 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant.
Applies to properties in the District more then five miles from a District fire station.
Inquires concerning Classification ratings can be directed to the District administrative office.
