New fire protection rating could help property insurance premiums

The Fire Department recently achieved an important rating for fire protection capabilities that could help residents and business owners keep costs down for property insurance premiums. For the first time, the Fire Department achieved the highest Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating for fire protection for parts of the City served by fire hydrants. The ISO is an independent company that calculates ratings on a scale of 1 (highest) to 10 (lowest) that many insurance providers use when assessing risk and calculating premiums. Oklahoma City is now rated a 1 in areas with hydrants.
