ISO Protection Classes
The Insurance Services Organization (ISO) Property Protection Class (PPC) program provides important, up-to-date information about municipal fire-protection services throughout the country. A community’s investment in fire mitigation is a proven and reliable predictor of future fire losses. So insurance companies use PPC information to help establish fair premiums for fire insurance — generally offering lower premiums in communities with better protection.
The following list is the ISO Property Protection Class’s for cities within Sedgwick County Fire District 1.
