Red Bank Fire Department rating improves

Posted: Updated:

RED BANK, TN (WRCB) -- The Red Bank Fire Department has been awarded a Public Protection Classification 3 rating, improving the previous Class 4 rating.

The Insurance Services Office (ISO) is an independent organization that serves the property/casualty insurance industry.

The real-world benefits of the improved ISO rating mean property owners could see a savings through reduced property insurance premiums, and should also help the city recruit businesses.

ISO collects information on a community's public fire protection and grades a fire department on:

  • fire alarms and dispatching
  • fire department personnel, equipment, and training
  • water supply

The city is then assigned a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10, with Class 1 being the highest level of service and response.
