The Collingswood Fire Department has just received word that it was evaluated and retained its ISO Class 3 rating. ISO stands for Insurance Services Organization. They do an independent audit of fire departments in the country and rate them on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the best. They rate the fire department's ability to answer and respond to emergencies, the dispatch center capabilities, needed water flow and hydrant services. Out of over 47,000 fire departments across the country, we are 1 of under 3,000 that have a class 3 or better rating. This is a testament to the great services we provide.
