Suggestion for a Living Memorial to September 11th, and the 343 firefighters killed that day.
ISO no longer shows which Fire Departments have ISO Class 1 ratings (the highest rating) does any one know which Fire Departments received new ISO Class 1 ratings? Illinois' 5th ISO Class 1, Kansas' 1st ISO Class 1, Missouri only ISO Class 1, and Texas' 13th ISO Class 1. If you have this information please email it to ISOClass1@1000FireStations.com. Thank you!!

Featured Volunteer Fire Department - Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department

The Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire department was chosen to be featured here, because it is the first volunteer ISO Class 1 Fire Department in the country.

Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department
     
The two fire departments featured on this website demonstrate that it does not matter, if you have a small nor large, paid nor volunteer, it is possible for a fire department to have the highest possible ISO class rating.
The count of ISO Class 1 fire departments is increasing, and many fire departments have been working to improve their ratings, but it does puzzle me in the light of the potential savings, millions and even billions of dollars, why don't more fire departments have higher ratings?
New Featured Fire Station - Scottsdale Fire Department's Fire Station 2

The Scottsdale Fire Station 2 was chosen to be the new featured station, because it is the first of only two LEED Platinum Certified fire stations in the world. The other is Madison Fire Station 12.
