Coconut Creek Fire Rescue earned the distinction of Class 1 Public Protection Classification rating by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) – the highest achievable score. An ISO fire rating is a score earned by fire departments and provided to insurance companies. The score reflects how prepared a community is for fires in the areas of investigation, fire safety education, hydrant flow testing, water supply system locations, and training to name a few categories. A good, or low ISO score indicates that a fire is not likely to severely damage or decimate a building, therefore, potentially allowing for slightly lower home insurance rates. 

Less than one percent of all fire departments in the United States have received an ISO 1 rating. “Our team worked very hard to achieve this significant rating,” explained Brian Blizzard, Interim Chief, Coconut Creek Fire Rescue. “It shows the citizens of Coconut Creek that they are protected by some of the best fire services in the country.” 

Other City departments such as Utilities & Engineering, Sustainable Development, and Public Works were instrumental in achieving this rating by assisting with maintenance and station improvements.

“Our leadership team hired outstanding staff, and this ISO 1 rating confirms that our fire department is among the elite,” stated Coconut Creek Mayor Josh Rydell.
