This project was driven by NFPA Standards and ISO Compliance guidelines. These 2 organizations set guidelines and standards that all fire departments have to meet in order to maintain a ISO classification rating which affects homeowner as well as business insurance rates. The lower the ISO Rating the Lower the Insurance rates are. During our required annual testing last year we had several sections of hose fail the test so we had to replace it. We also were short some vital pieces of equipment that we were able to purchase. Thanks for awarding us this grant because without your help it would have been difficult for us to have made the purchase.
