PRINCETON, WV- The City of Princeton is proud to announce that the City has maintained its Class 2 ISO rating.
At the July City Council Meeting on July 17, Fire Chief Matt Mould announced the Princeton Fire Department has once again achieved an ISO Class Rating of 2.
The Princeton Fire Department was first issued an ISO Rating of 2 in 2016 and has continued the level of expertise required to maintain that rating for the renewal period. This rating is beneficial not only to the city, but to the homeowners and businesses within the city because many insurance companies offer lower premiums based on the ISO of your fire department.
ISO (Insurance Service Office) is responsible for inspecting and rating all fire departments to determine how well they can protect their community, homes, and businesses. ISO ratings range from 1 to 10, with one (1) being the top score. This process reviews your fire operations, emergency communications, and water supply.
“Achieving and maintaining an ISO Rating of 2 requires education, continued training, and the dedication of our local firefighters. This is also evidence of the City’s commitment to provide its citizens and businesses with a safe community. We are very proud of the hard work that has been put in toward maintaining this Class 2 rating for the past seven (7) years,” said Princeton Fire Chief Matt Mould.
