Our Sheldon Fire Department’s new ISO Rating is 7.

Fire department ISO ratings are a determination of how well our department is prepared to fight a fire – the lower the rating, the better.  Our community ISO has improved 3 points (from 10 to a 7). You may wish to check with your insurance company on how this may reduce your premium.  Without contacting your insurance, some premiums may still see a small reduction at renewal time.  Some insurance companies use the ISO rating to determine premiums, while others use many different methods, such as distance to a fire department.
Either way, we can rest easier knowing our fire department is better prepared to meet our community needs!
