ISO Ratings

As of January 1, 2014:  MRFD has an ISO Rating of 4/6/10.

For the Missoula Rural Fire District, the ISO rating is based off two major categories: distance from the closest responding fire station, and distance from a fire hydrant.

 

  • If a property is in our district, within 5-miles from a fire station, AND is within 1,000 feet from a fire hydrant:  then the property can have our lowest –and best– ISO rating of a “4”.
  • If a property is in our district, within 5-miles from a fire station, BUT is more than 1,000 feet from a fire hydrant:  then the property will have an ISO rating of a “6”.
  • If a property is in our district AND has a distance of more than 5-miles from a fire station:  that property will have an automatic ISO rating of a “10.”

 

Note from the Chief:  We are in the process of trying to improve our ISO rating.  We will keep you posted on this effort!
