LEFD Awarded Class 1 ISO Rating Once Again

news from FD (1)

Once again, the Little Elm Fire Department received a Class 1 rating from the Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO) Public Protection Classification Program.

Typically, the ISO updates its survey every five years. It determines the rating by surveying fire suppression and prevention activities, water supply and water supply distribution systems, and the capabilities of the department's 9-1-1 communication center. 

This rating is critical to the Little Elm community because it can impact the price of individual and commercial property insurance. 

With the Class 1 rating, stakeholders may be eligible for lower property insurance rates. 

ISO rates municipalities between 1 and 10, with a 1 rating as the best possible score. 

The Town of Little Elm first earned this prestigious recognition in 2016. 

Little Elm will be just one out of 411 communities across the United States to receive this rating for 2021. 

The Little Elm Fire Department manages 25 square miles, including its incorporated limits, extraterritorial jurisdictions, and areas under contract for service. 

Little Elm Fire Department Chief Paul Rust is thrilled with the rating renewal and credits Town leadership and staff for planning and focusing on public safety.

"For the last ten years, the Town has emphasized ensuring our team has the training and equipment it needs to protect the public. There's a lot that goes into our ISO rating determination — from the purchasing of new apparatuses to the maintenance of fire hydrants by our Public Works team," Rust said. 

Chief Rust joined the LEFD in April of 2020.
