Insurance Services Office (ISO) is a third party evaluator of community fire protection. The evaluation includes water supply, communications and the capabilities of the Fire Department. Scoring is based on a 1-10 scale with the lower the number being a greater overall capability. The Wheat Ridge Fire Department improved their score from a 4 to a 2 in Wheat Ridge, Lakeside, Mountain View and a small portion of Lakewood. In Edgewater this reduction was from a 6 to a 2. The ISO Public Protection Classification is a tool utilized by a majority of insurance companies to aid in determining fire insurance rates for properties within the assessed jurisdiction.
This classification placed Wheat Ridge Fire Protection District in the 98th percentile nationwide.
