Your insurance company is the one that determines the insurance rating (sometimes referred to as ISO rating) for all properties.
Normally, if a property is within 5 road miles of a fire station that meets the ISO rating system, that property is rated lower than a “10”. A “10” rating indicates a lack of adequate fire protection that could respond in a timely fashion. Most properties in the county are rated a “9” and properties within 1000’ of a municipal fire hydrant are generally rated a “7/9”.
