VVFD's Insurance Classification Information

ISO's Public Protection Classification Program (PPC) plays an important role in the underwriting process at insurance companies.  Most U.S. insurers use PPC information as part of their decision making when deciding what coverage to offer or prices to charge for personal or commercial property insurance.

ISO conducted its review of the fire suppression features being provided for Verde Valley Fire District.  The resulting community classification is Class 03/10.

The split classification is defined as follows:

  • The first class (03) applies to properties within five (5) road miles of a recognized fire station and within the Verde Valley Fire District's boundaries.  Because VVFD has a qualified Alternate Water Supply, the requirement to be within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant does not apply; the only requirement that a property must meet to obtain the first class rating is to be within five (5) road miles of a recognized fire station and within the Verde Valley Fire District's boundaries.
  • Class 10 applies to properties over five (5) road miles of a recognized fire station or not within the Verde Valley Fire District's boundaries.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact either Chief Hazime or Assistant Chief Moore at (928) 634-2578.
