    How soon can you get a new inspection for ISO-PPC ratings?

  • #2
    Depends on how much the ratings can be expected to change. ISO would be the best to let you know.
    "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?

      Yep ... probably best just to contact the ISO. The lead time can vary greatly. My old outfit, the Bakersfield City Fire Department CA worked with the ISO for about 2 years before they came out and re surveyed last year. Went from a ISO Class 3 up to a ISO Class 2 with no other changes other than improved record keeping which was tax dollar neutral.

      I for one am not sure if that is possible or not, but there you have it. The new ISO grading schedule has certainly changed. I for do not understand it at all. Parts of it still make sense, other parts do not make sense at all. One also might consider spending a little tax money and have your outfit pre surved by an independant (sp?) private party fire surveyor.

      Historically the ISO would leave you alone unless your agency suffered a catastrophic loss major incident, or now about 5-8 years have gone by, or if bad changes warrent an unscheduled re survey or if you specifically request a fresh survey like just after improvements in your agency, water supply, communications and the new prevention section. Good luck.
