    Any top secret info is appreciated. We are getting ready for an on-site this year.

    Your best bet is to prepare, prepare, and prepare. ISO usually has a prep sheet, go by it and have everything assembled and ready for their inspection. Make copies of all the items they want and put what you can in a notebook. If it doesnt fit, put a page in that divider section and tell where that resource may be found. Also have all of your coverage maps, hydrant maps, hydrant main size maps, etc. produced for their inspection. All training records, incident statistics, etc.

    Our department went from an ISO 3 to a 2 due to our preparation. For more information, feel free to contact our ISO/Accreditation Manager, Battalion Captain William Purcell by email at or call him at 804.970.3240

    Go over to web sites, then Nevada, then Fallon. They have a 200 page ISO tricks book you can down load on the BIO page. They dropped 7 classes in one shot in the rural areas without benefit of hydrants and are a Class 1 volunteer department in town and They helped the other volly Class 1 department get theirs.
