2013 Fire Department Statistics
Madison Fire & Rescue has been awarded a Class 1 Public Protection Classification rating by the Insurance Services Office (ISO), an organization that independently evaluates municipal fire protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. The Class 1 rating is the highest possible score that can be given to any fire department. Madison Fire & Rescue became only 1 of 2 fire departments in the State of Alabama, and is 1 of only 133 nationally to have achieved this prestigious and significant ranking out of the approximately 49,000 fire districts that ISO evaluates. Insurance companies use ISO information combined with other factors to establish local business and residential property insurance rates - generally offering lower premiums in communities with better protection. With the new Class 1 rating, Madison residents and businesses should enjoy the lowest fire insurance rating in the industry! If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact us at 256-772-3326 and we will be glad to answer any questions you might have.
