The City of Parker's Public Protection Classification Updated To Class 2

Insurance Services Office's Public Protection Classification Progam (ISO)

To help establish appropriate fire insurance premiums for residential and commercial properties, insurance companies need reliable, up-to-date information about a community's fire-protection services. ISO provides that information through the Public Protection Classification (PPC) program.

ISO collects information on municipal fire-protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. In each of those communities, ISO analyzes the relevant data using our Fire Suppression Rating Schedule. We then assign a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents exemplary public protection, and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire-suppression program does not meet ISO's minimum criteria.

By classifying a community's ability to suppress fires, ISO helps to evaluate their public fire-protection services, securing lower fire insurance premiums for communities with better public protection. The PPC program provides incentives and rewards for communities that choose to improve their firefighting services.

As of August 1, 2016, the City of Parker's classification was updated to a Class 2. Nationwide, we are in the top 2% and, in Texas, we are in the top 8% of communities rated by ISO.
