In addition, ISO (Insurance Services Office) analyzes information from its Fire Suppression Rating Schedule
(FSRS) to assign Public Protection Classifications (PPCTM) to almost 47,000 fire protection areas across the country--recognizing the efforts of communities to provide fire protection services in three major areas: emergency fire communications, water supply, and the fire department.
That program became the industry's nationwide Fire Suppression Rating Schedule
. Rare is the policy written today--personal or commercial--that does not take into account the ISO classification, which evaluates the water supply, fire department and fire-alarm system of the community where the risk is located.
