Our local volunteer fire company, Susquehanna Hose Company, has received an ISO rating of 2. This is AWESOME news! What is an ISO rating? ISO stands for Insurance Services Offices which collects and evaluates information from communities in the United States on their structure fire suppression capabilities. What does this rating mean to you? While not all insurance carriers recognize ISO ratings, many do and will give you a discount on your homeowner insurance premiums. It is not automatic so you have to call and ask. You are encouraged to do so because it may be time well spent and a way for you to cut “your” costs and increase “your” disposable income.
