ISO insurance rating
The UJFD was re-evaluated by Insurance Services Organization ISO and we have attained a new PPC rating of 4/6/10 (4 in areas with hydrants, 6 for areas with no hydrants but within 5 road miles of a fire station and 10 for areas outside of 5 miles from a fire station). This is a huge accomplishment and, effective March 1, 2014, it may significantly LOWER the home owner's insurance premiums of many U-J residents. Please see these documents for more details regarding this system and its impact on insurance rates, including:
