ISO Information



ISO is an organization that rates the capability of fire departments to deal structural fires. Some insurance companies use the ISO rating to help set property insurance rates.

As of May 1, 2016 Montana City has improved from a Split Class 7/9 to a Class 5. A few notes about the ratings

  • These rating only apply to properties in the Montana City Rural Fire District and within 5 road miles of a Montana City Fire Station.
  • Some large commercial facilities are rated individually
  • The previous split rating was Class 7 for properties within 5 miles of a fire station and 1000 feet of a hydrant. Class 9 applied to properties within 5 miles of a station but outside 1000ft from a hydrant
  • The new Class 5 rating applies throughout the district as long as the property is within 5 miles of a fire station.
  • Many, but not all insurance companies use ISO ratings to help set premium rates.

This improvement in capability and public safety comes directly from the hard work of your local volunteer firefighters and the funding support from the property owners of the Montana City Rural Fire District. Thank you!
