Your insurance company is the one that determines the insurance rating (sometimes referred to as ISO rating) for all properties.
Normally, if a property is within 5 road miles of a fire station that meets the ISO rating system, that property is rated lower than a “10”. A “10” rating indicates a lack of adequate fire protection that could respond in a timely fashion. Most properties in the county are rated a “9” and properties within 1000’ of a municipal fire hydrant are generally rated a “7/9”.
This map shows most of the rural residences and their proximity to the nearest fire station using all-weather roads.
Disclaimer: The information contained on this map was derived using road records showing “approved” surface types for Emergency Response purposes and their traversable distance from a rural fire station. Roads designated as “trail”, “undeveloped” or “unimproved” are not considered approved surface types. No guarantee is given as to the accuracy of the depicted surface type of a road. If you have questions about an ISO rating, please contact your insurance provider.
