Dear Fire Chief,


Insurance Services Office (ISO) has submitted a recommendation concerning your community’s Public Protection Classification (PPC). Currently, the Community’s Public Classification rating is a class 6/9.  Insurance Services Office is recommending that the classification be changed to a split class 6/9, with an effective date of 12/01/2003. The recommendation is based on a review of your community performed on 04/08/2003 and does include application of the Texas Addendum. With a split class all property located within 1000 feet of a fire hydrant, and within 5 miles of a fire station, will use a class 6. All property farther than 1000 feet of a fire hydrant, and within a 5 miles of a fire station, will use a class 9.  Public Protection Classifications range from 1 (best) to 10 (worst).  We have reviewed the information provided and believe it is sufficient to grant approval. Enclosed is a PPC Submittal sheet indicating the point totals for the major areas associated with the review. We will notify Insurance Services Office of our approval of the recommendation and the 12/01/2003 effective date.  If you have any questions regarding the change, I may be reached at the address indicated above.  Please make sure all community officials and residents within your district are notified of the new Public Protection Classification rating for your community, and the effective date.
