In July of 2015 the city of Adrian was evaluated by ISO regarding its Public Protection Classification (the system fire insurance underwriters use to determine fire insurance rates. Areas evaluated include: Fire Departments (staffing, equipment and response), water systems and 9-1-1 Emergency Dispatch). Adrian improved from a Class 5 to a Class 4 (Class 1 is the highest, Class 9 is the lowest). Evaluations are conducted about every 10 years. What this means in terms of dollars and cents to citizens is a question best left answered by insurance companies, but typically lower homeowner insurance rates are seen.
Questions regarding Adrian’s ISO classification should be directed to the Fire Chief.
