ISO Improves Rating For Haralson County Fire Department

Haralson County Ga -- Most homeowners in Haralson County should see around a 10% savings in their insurance premiums beginning in 2018 after the Insurance Services Office lowered their rating for the Haralson County Fire Department from a 5 to a 4 this month. The savings will benefit homeowners in Tallapoosa, Buchanan, Waco and unincorporated Haralson County.

"We were graded this past April and we just received our confirmation. We've gone from a five to a four," stated Haralson County Fire Chief Brian Walker. "When an ISO comes in, they grade your 911 center and your water departments. As a fire department we are graded on how many fire stations we have, graded on response time and graded on man power that that responds to the fire calls."   

The ISO is a private, nonprofit company that grades fire departments. Lower numbers signify better fire protection and insurance companies rely on the ratings for premiums for homeowners and businesses.
