Fire Department named ISO Class 1

Fire Department named ISO Class 1
Posted on 04/25/2018

The Lenexa Fire Department (LFD) continues to be recognized as one of the top-rated fire protection agencies in the world.

For the second time in four years, the LFD has been named an Insurance Services Office (ISO) Class 1 community. Lenexa originally earned the Class 1 rating in 2014 and recently learned that the department maintained the top rating after ISO conducted a redetermination study. The ISO system measures the quality and effectiveness of municipal fire protection.

Additionally, the LFD is one of 247 agencies accredited by the Commission of Fire Accreditation International. Only 60 organizations in the world have received this accreditation and have an ISO Class 1 rating.

“Together, the Commission on Fire Accreditation International designation and Insurance Service Office highest rating verifies and validates our goal of continuous organizational improvement,” explains Lenexa Fire Chief Lonny Owens.

ISO’s ratings are used to help establish fire insurance premiums for residential, commercial and industrial properties. The program provides an objective, countrywide standard that helps fire departments plan and budget for facilities, equipment and training.
