Department of Safety Improves on ISO Public Protection Classification


ISO LogoCongratulations to the City of Richmond Heights' Department of Safety for completing the ISO - Public Protection Classification Survey and earning an exceptional rating of 3 out of 10 (with 1 being the best possible score). This represents an improvement from the City's previous rating of 4. The ISO collects and evaluates information from all communities in the United States on their fire suppression capabilities. Richmond Heights is 1 of only 184 communities in the State of Ohio assigned a Class 3 PPC.

What this means to you, as residents or businesses in the City of Richmond Heights, is not only are you being protected by some of the finest personnel and best facilities in the region, you may also be entitled to a lower rate on your homeowners, or business insurance. This rating went into effect on August 1st, 2015. Be sure to check with your insurance carrier to see how this may affect your rates. Again, kudos to the fine men and women of the Department of Safety for this well deserved acknowledgement.
