Shallotte Fire Receives ISO Rating Class 2

Congratulations to our Shallotte Fire Department on receiving an ISO Rating Class 2 from the Public Protection Classification (PPC) Program! 


What does this mean?

- The ISO (Insurance Services Office) Fire score, recognizes the efforts of communities to provide fire protection services for citizens and property owners. 

- Insurance companies use the score to help set home insurance rates. 

- ISO fire insurance rating is a score from 1 to 10, with 1 being the best possible rating and 10 being the worst possible rating. The rating indicates how well-protected your community is by the Fire Department. 

- 1,533 Fire Departments are rated by the NC , only 13 departments currently have a class 1 rating and 15 departments have a class 2 rating. 


To achieve an ISO rating of 2 down from a 4 is an outstanding accomplishment for our Shallotte Fire Department and our Shallotte Citizens. 


Thank you Chief Dunwell and staff for a job well done!
