Kerrville’s Public Protection Classification Improved From a Class 3 To a Class 2 - This Could Result In Lower Property Insurance Rates
In 2007, the Insurance Services Office (ISO) conducted an extensive Public Protection Classification (PPC) survey for the City of Kerrville. In 2008, the ISO notified the City that as a result of their survey they have recommended to the Texas Department of Insurance / State Fire Marshal’s Office that our PPC should be improved from a Class 3 to a Class 2 and should result in lower property insurance rates for Kerrville residents and businesses.
The ISO is the leading supplier of statistical, underwriting and actuarial information for the property/casualty insurance industry. Their Public Protection Classification survey is an analysis of the structural fire suppression delivery system provided in a community and they then assign that community a PPC ranging from 1 to 10. A Class 1 rating represents exemplary fire protection and Class 10 rating indicates that the area’s fire suppression program does not meet minimum recognized criteria. The PPC number developed by ISO is one of several elements considered in the calculation of individual and commercial property insurance premiums by most insurance companies in Texas.
