Public Protection Classification Survey

The City of Bainbridge and Bainbridge Public Safety are pleased to report the outcome of the recent Public Protection Classification survey by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The ISO completed an analysis of the structural fire suppression delivery system provided in Bainbridge, and Bainbridge Public Safety Chief Eric Miller is pleased to report a Public Protection Classification of 4 was received.

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

PPC is important to communities and fire departments by providing a valuable benchmark, and is used by many departments as a valuable tool when planning, budgeting, and justifying fire protection improvements.
Chief Miller stated that Major Doyle Welch was instrumental in the success of the survey and in attaining the high rating for the City of Bainbridge.
