What is the Public Protection Classification (ISO Rating) in Pembroke Pines?
Pembroke Pines Fire Department is proud to be one of a select group of ISO rated, class one departments. ISO ratings are from 1 to 10, with class 1 representing the best level of fire protection and class 10 indicating no recognized level of protection.

ISO ratings are calculated by reviewing a number of factors, including but not limited to, the Fire Department’s capability to receive and handle fire alarms, fire station locations, average daily staffing levels, the fire pump capacity of apparatus, the type of the equipment carried on the apparatus, the amount of company and facility training, and the overall capacity of the City’s water supply.

As a Pembroke Pines resident or business owner, you should contact your insurance carrier for more information on how ISO ratings can reduce your annual insurance premiums.
