I'm with you on the 'good ol' boy' club and their empire building power trips, but seriously, it takes more than just a well trained and dedicated group of firefighters to bring an ISO rating to a 1. If I recall correctly, anything below 7 only reduces commercial insurance rates and doesn't affect residential at all. (I may be wrong on that number). You can't blame a high ISO on the 'good ol' boy' club.
