  • Rural ISO Rating system

    Here's a question...how in the world does ISO rate rural (outside the hydrant area). I know the put as much water as possible on wheels, but do they use the training, equipment inventories, and all in the FSRS too? Kinda curious about this one, hasn't been much on it in anything I've read lately.

    //Here's a question...how in the world does ISO rate rural (outside the hydrant area).

    ISo pretty much keeps it a secret maybe that is why only 400 departments have a fire department supply grade.

    They will grade yor hydranted town and everythig else will get a Class 9 within five miles of your fire houses. If you ask the grader to rate you on hauled water, relays, drafting, long hose lays or any combination of those they will.

    If you don't ask they will simply give you the Class 9 that will apply for all properties beyond 1000 feet from a hydrant.

    //but do they use the training, equipment inventories, and all in the FSRS too?

    Not if you can't move at least 250 gpm for 2 hours there way. Until yo prove you can move the water none of the other stuff matters.

    Ther are about 15 departments without hydrants who have earned Class 3's, 4's, 5's. There are 285 with Class 6's, 7's and 8's.


    The following web page has a free 170 page how to book which will tell you how to go about getting a rural grade. There is a chapter on rural water supply.
