ISO is an independent organization that evaluates a community’s ability to respond to fires. The evaluation considers dozens of elements within the fire, water, and dispatch centers. Most of the country’s major insurers use the ISO rating in their premium calculations.
Wichita Falls joins less than 400 other jurisdictions with an ISO Class 1 rating. This designation is a testament to the efforts of those within the fire department, water department, and dispatch center, along with the strategic and financial support provided to these departments by city leadership and our city council.
