Regarding ISO Rating

Reno you have several qualified arguements throughout this thread. First, I would recommend you direct you your irratation about the fire fee at local officials who are unwilling to raise taxes or make buget adjustments. Instead they use fees to cover necessary services. Second, some of what you stated about the ISO rating is true but you created a very misleading understanding of ISO ratings and their requirements. ISO rating of 9 can be met by your description of 1 truck and four firefighters. That does leave out times, water supply, distances, pump capacity etc. Many volunteer departments have ISO ratings of 7-4 depending on staffing, equipment, location etc. Your WFD has an ISO of a 2 - one shy of being the best. The WFD webpage even posts their rating and provides the necessary links for the general public to educate themselves on what quality of service they receiving.
