Concord Township Receives a New ISO Rating
March 15, 2018

Concord Township Fire Department completed an Insurance Service Office (ISO)/Public Protection Classification Program (PPC) audit and inspection in late 2017. The assertion comes with the announcement the Concord Township has achieved a jump in ISO Ratings from a Class 5 to a Class 4.

We are very proud of this accomplishment, particularly as nationwide only 26% of all fire departments have achieved a score of 4 or better,and within the State of Indiana we are in the top 14%.

This rating indicates the townships ability to respond to a fire emergency and represents the combined capabilities of the fire department (constituting 50 percent of the score), the water department (40 percent of the score) and the communication department (10 percent).

Many insurance companies base their rates, in part, on a property’s ISO/PPC rating.  As such, we encourage all residents and commercial property owners serviced by the Concord Township Fire Department to contact their insurance company after June 1, 2018 to receive any possiblesavings resulting from this improved ISO/PPC rating. Because there is no way to automatically notify insurance carriers of the change to our ISO/PPC rating, the policy holders must contact their respective insurance company. We will be happy to provide documentation to your insurance company if needed.

Concord Township and the Concord Township Fire Department would also like to thank you, the residents of Concord Township for your continued support.  We would also like to thank the members of our fire department, its officers and chiefs, the township board and trustee for your efforts in helping to achieve this improvement in our rating.Without everyone working together we could not have done this, and we will all continue to work to bring you the best possible service and value in fire protection and EMS.
