The following are the current Insurance Services Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification (PPC) Ratings for the fire districts in Franklin County. Some departments will have two codes:
- The first will be the rating for all areas in the respective response district that are covered with hydrants. The structures must be within 1,000 feet of a good hydrant.
- The second number will be the rating for all structures within 5 road miles of a fire station.
- The stations with only one number are departments without hydrants in their primary response area.
There are also areas that have a "Dry Hydrant" within two road miles of a structure. ISO will rate these, however we have not had this process completed yet. Individual insurance companies may offer reduces insurance premiums for these areas on an individual basis.
