Fayetteville, Georgia – January, 27, 2023 – The Fayetteville Fire Department recently announced that it has been awarded an improved Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating thanks to the ongoing dedication and work of its personnel with the support of several partnering agencies.
Effective in December 2022, the Fayetteville Fire Department’s ISO rating improved from 3/3x to 2/2x, joining fewer than 90 other agencies in the State of Georgia to achieve a rating of 2 or better. There are only about 2,400 fire departments in the nation with a 2 or better rating.
“I am proud of our department, and I appreciate everyone’s efforts to continue to move our department forward,” said Fayetteville Fire Chief Linda Black. “We have a bright future ahead with a lot of growth and changes being made throughout our city. Our new rating is something to be very proud of, and it shows all of the hard work and dedication that everyone in our department puts forth every day.”
Chief Black noted that, while the new 2/2x ISO rating is affixed to the Fayetteville Fire Department, the accomplishment wouldn’t have been possible without support from other agencies, including the Fayetteville Water Department, the Fayette County Water Department, the Fayette County Department of Fire & Emergency Services, and the Fayette County Communications (911) dispatch system.
The ISO rating relates to fire suppression capabilities based on first-alarm responses, the ability to minimize potential loss, an evaluation of a community’s water supply system, emergency dispatch communications, adherence to fire prevention codes, fire safety education, fire investigation programs, and more.
“This new rating is reflective of a community that is committed to public safety,” Chief Black continued. “We appreciate the support, and we look forward to a future of continued improvements.”
