Fire Dept. Secures Lower ISO Rating for Residents

November 3, 2016.

Under the direction of the Helotes Fire Department, the ISO and Texas Department of Insurance State Fire Marshal's Office recently issued a classification change for the City of Helotes Insurance Service Office (ISO) Public Protection Classification (PPC).  The City of Helotes improved to a Class 2 rating for residential and commercial properties within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant and within five road miles of the fire station.  The Class 2 rating for these properties is effective December 1, 2016.
Residential and commercial properties that are within five road miles of the fire station but are further than 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant will remain in PPC Class 3.  
Congratulations to the Helotes Fire Department for improving the classification.  This change could save qualifying residential and commercial property owners on the cost of their insurance premiums.
