Effective September 1, 2018, the Insurance Services Officer's (ISO) Public Protection Classification for the South Trail Fire District is now a 2/2x. The improved ISO rating from a 3/3x to a 2/2x is significant because it may lower insurance premiums for property owners in the South Trail Fire District.
The ISO rating of a fire district is used by many insurance companies to calculate premiums for properties located within that district. The ISO rating of a fire district is determined by factors such as hydrants, stations, staffing, apparatus, equipment, fire inspections, training, and public education. ISO classifications range from 1 to 10 with a 1 the best and a 10 the worst. The new ISO rating for the South Trail Fire District is a 2/2x with the 2 rating including properties within 1000 feet of a hydrant; the 2x rating includes properties over 1000 feet from a hydrant, but protected by an ISO Class 2 fire district. less.
We encourage property owners to contact their insurance company to check if lower premiums are available because of the 2/2x ISO rating for the South Trail Fire District.
