City of Clovis Awarded

City of Clovis Awarded Class 2 Rating by the Insurance Services Office

 

The City of Clovis is pleased to announce that it was recently surveyed by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) to determine its Public Protection Classification (PPC) and effective February 1, 2015, the City of Clovis will be upgraded to a Class 2 rating.  

Using this rating scale, ISO objectively reviews the fire protection capabilities of the community and assigns a Public Protection Classification number from 1 to 10.  Class 1 represents exemplary fire protection in the community and Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire suppression programs do not meet minimum recognition criteria. ISO evaluates a community approximately once every ten (10) years or when major department changes occur.  The City of Clovis received a Class 4 rating in 1988, a Class 3 rating in 2001 and in 2015, will be upgraded to a Class 2.
