TIMBERLINE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT ISO CHANGE
Through continual support from our community, the Timberline Fire Protection District (TFPD) is proud to announce the improvement of our Public Protection Classification (PPC). The Insurance Services Office, in partnership with TFPD and Gilpin County, determined the new rating.
Timberline Fire Public Protection Classification rating effective November 1, 2018:
PPC Rating of 5: This rating applies to all TFPD residents and business owners within five road miles of TFPD stations 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8. This classification has improved from 9.
PPC Rating of 10: This rating applies to all TFPD residents and business owners outside five road miles of the above mentioned fire stations. This classification has not changed.
What this could mean for you:
Most insurance companies in the U.S. use the ISO’s Public Protection Classification when determining the pricing of property insurance. With this new classification, you may see a reduction in your home or business insurance premium. We encourage you to contact your insurance provider to see if the TFPD’s new classification will affect your policy.
How is the ISO-PPC rating determined?
The Insurance Services Office Public Protection Classification is based on a grading scale from 1 to 10. A 1 classification represents superior property fire protection, and a 10 classification indicates that the area’s fire protection does not meet ISO’s minimum criteria.
