City Keeps Its “4” Fire ISO


Aransas Pass has an excellent Fire Department ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating of “4” during a recent ISO review, the City was able to maintain that rating. The ISO is used by insurance companies in most states to evaluate fire departments for the purpose of establishing insurance premiums in the local areas. A rating of “1”, which is virtually only attainable in large cities, is the best. A rating of “10” is the worst. A “4” rating is a very strong position for Aransas Pass and that number reflects a highly qualified fire department. “The ISO ratings for the City are based mostly on Fire Department capabilities,” Fire Chief Nathan Kelley said. “When the City invests in maintaining and improving the effectiveness of the fire department it lowers that rating. A lower rating provides less expensive insurance rates for our citizens and makes the City a safer place to live.”
