Clarksburg, WV, October 31, 2016 – The Insurance Service Office (ISO) conducted a site assessment to the City of Clarksburg for the purpose of assigning a Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating for fire protection.  The ISO has upgraded our classification from a class 3 rating to a class 2.

Of the numerous communities nationwide in the structure fire suppression evaluation, less than 3 percent scored in the top two classifications – Clarksburg Fire Department was among them.

The ratings are conducted by the Insurance Services Offices and are evaluated using a Fire Suppression Rating Schedule.  ISO collects and evaluates information from communities throughout the United States on their structure fire suppression capabilities.  In each of these communities, ISO analyzes the relevant data using the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS).  Using this rating schedule, the ISO assigns a Public Protection Classification (PPC) from 1 to 10.

Fire Chief Rick Scott stated, “I am extremely proud of this accomplishment.  It is a testament to our training and the deployment of the fire protection capabilities we have in the City of Clarksburg.”  Chief Scott continued, “Clarksburg City Council, the City administration, Clarksburg Water Department, Harrison County 911 Center, and the officers and members of the Clarksburg Fire Department strive to provide the best fire protection and emergency services possible.”
