The Insurance Services Office Inc. (ISO) is the leading supplier of statistical, actuarial and underwriting information for the property/casualty insurance industry. The ISO fire insurance ratings for a community are the foundation on which most insurers build their coverage programs. The ratings range from 1 to 10, with 1 being perfect. Since the ISO fire ratings are used by property insurance companies to set premium rates, the lower the ISO fire rating, the lower the premium.
The ratings are based on many factors, including:
The City of Edwardsville has been awarded an ISO rating of 4, which is one of the lowest ratings awarded to the communities in Southern Illinois. Our good rating reflects our extensive training, aggressive Building Plan Review, and Building Inspection programs.
