    Anyone have a list of what ISO is looking for when they look at hydrants?
    What needs to be shown to them on paper? Thanks Ed

      Regular testing and measuring of GPM at different pressures. For us, they took the water department's records.
      "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

        Our water department has no records, looking for a document that shows them what needs to be done to get maximum ISO points. Or to NFPA specfications. Thanks Ed

          I believe they are also looking for a certain minimum flow rate. There are a couple of web sites that list many of the requirements as well. Also you can contact the ISO and they will give you the information.

            First, go to ISO's website, find a number, call and request a copy of the FSRS (Fire Supression Rating Schedule). You can get a copy for your FD for free. Your chief may have to make the request, though.

            Second, go to ISOSlayer.com and download Larry Stevens' book. Very good info on all aspects of the ISO rating (including hydrants and water supply).

            Those two should get you exactly what you need.

              Only one level 1 rating in our state as I know of and that's Greensboro Fire Department. From my understanding they have an overkill amount of departments for their area as well as an extra lot of pencil pushers to make sure they keep this rating. Ratings in NC however are now performed by the Department of Insurance not ISO, however, the rating numbers are the same but with different criteria for each. Our department is currently a 4.
