Finding ISO Department Data
Fellow Fire Planners,
I need your help again. Can a few of you give me direction in find important ISO Data (PPC, Local Batch Reports, Insurers Rate reduction as for PPC).
Also where can I find Insurance Rate Data based on geographical location and Public Protection Classification.
This information is very important to my department. Municipal Leaders are threatening to cut Capital Funding this year and I need to explain our department and it's complex challenges. I would also like to give them a lesson in Fire Insurance Savings as a result of Community Fire Protection Quality.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated Dept. wide!
Vermont is the geo-location.
Thanks for the words of wisdom; keep the info coming
Thanks for the info. I was able to contact my regional office and get our rating over the phone. The Batch Reporting System was down so I had NO LUCK with that. As far as the last rating report I think that maybe a little out of date to help us.
Anyone re-evalutated in the last year or so let me know your expierence with it.
Our Municipality leaders have decided to squeeze OUR budget this year for more than one reason. I will admit some of this is our fault for not presenting the data and being prepared to show them what they get for each dollar spent. Although being asked to go from two Engines to One is not acceptable to the community not to mention the department. This is why you have the current push to set the record straight. ISO is just one concrete way to show the data. Our ISO rating is less than great but still remains in the middle of the pack for the area. I hope to show the additional dollar amounts spent if ratings change (better or worse).
I have read Larry Stevens guide to ISO it is very very good. It has helped me greatly.
My next question is who will do all the preparation work prior to ISO re-evaluating us. It's a must do but I can see that few hands will raise for this assignment.
Thanks for the help
