What is our ISO Rating?

 The city of Glendale's current rating is a 1, the highest rating possible.

Insurance Services Office (ISO) is an independent company that serves insurance companies, communities, fire departments, insurance regulators, and others by providing information about risk.  ISO’s expert staff collects information about municipal fire suppression efforts in communities throughout the United States.  In each of those communities, ISO analyzes the relevant data and assigns a Public Protection Classification (PPC) grade – a number from 1 to 10.  Class 1 represents an exemplary fire suppression program, and Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire suppression program does not meet ISO’s minimum criteria. 

Insurance Services Office (ISO) is the leading supplier of data and analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry.  Most insurers use PPC classifications for underwriting and calculating premiums for residential, commercial and industrial properties.

Glendale Fire is part of the automatic aid agreement with the majority of the valley.  This means that the closest fire truck will respond to your emergency.  Therefore, this is not always the fire truck from the station closest to you.
