Lennox ISO rating improves; new rates could lower insurance premiums

In a letter recently received from The Insurance Services Office (ISO), Mayor Wiebers was informed the city’s fire classification rating improved by two points to a 4 classification.
ISO thanked Roger Almond, city water superintendent; Todd Baldwin, 911 director; Earl Fischer and Scott Timmerman, from The Lennox Fire Department, for their excellent cooperation during The Public Protection Classification (PPC) Survey.
The City of Lennox has been aggressive in past years by erecting two new water towers, and improving water flow through upgrades to their water delivery system.  The city portion of the survey comprises 40% of the total score.  The 911 Center accounts for 10% of the score.  They are evaluated on their capability to answer 911 calls, gather initial information, notify first responders, and give support throughout an incident.  The fire department is evaluated on fire-fighting capabilities such as pumping capacity of engines, amount of hose available for water delivery, and accurate training records. The 100 foot platform was a great addition to the department.  The fire department evaluation comprises 50% of the rating.
