How does ISO plan to keep up with future improvements to the county’s fire suppression infrastructure?

Insurance Services Office Inc. (ISO) normally visits a community once every 10 years.  However, the recent study has led ISO to understand that new community development, to include improved water supplies, new fire stations and upgraded equipment, produces a need for a more regular review to ensure that the data they provide to the insurance industry is as accurate as possible.  The Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management will be working with ISO to request a more frequent schedule of review based upon changes in these areas.
