  • Rating change may equal discounts for some owners

    Property owners in the North Oldham Fire Protection District might soon enjoy a discount on their insurance rates, thanks to a revised ISO rating.

    ISO (Insurance Services Office) is a nation-wide subscription service that most insurance companies  use for establishing premiums for fire insurance based all or in part on the “Property Protection Class” (PPC) rating.  A PPC of “1” is the best you can get and a PPC of “10“ would typically be assigned to areas without any fire protection at all.
