Centerville Fire/Rescue Earns Improved ISO Rating!!!
ISO personnel recently completed their updated report for Centerville Fire/Rescue's jurisdiction. Staff from CF/R, Town of Centerville Utilities, and Wayne County Emergency Communications provided needed information to the ISO personnel for their report. ISO's rating structure has changed for this year.
As of August 2017, Centerville Fire/Rescue's ISO rating has improved to a 4 within the Town of Centerville. This is an improvement from our previous rating of 6 within the town limits. Outside of the Town of Centerville, our rating previous was a 9. Our new rating for outside town limits is a 4X, meaning the actual rating has not changed, just labeled differently. For coverage over 5 miles from our station, our ISO rating has not changed, with the previous rating at a 10.
Congratulations on the new ISO fire coverage rating!
