Improvements made through the years by the Oklahoma City Fire Department may translate into lower homeowner insurance rates for some residents.
The Insurance Services Offices, a leading rating service used by insurance companies, recently gave Oklahoma City a score of 5 on a 1-to-10 scale, with 10 being the worst. That’s much better than the 9 the city received in 1993, the last time ICO did its testing.
Among the reasons for the better grade? The fire department now does a better job hauling water to parts of the city that don’t have hydrants. ISO ranks our department among the 14 best in the country in this area.
Ward 1 city council member Gary Marrs was right to praise the work of Fire Chief Keith Bryant and the department. We share in congratulating all the men and women of the department on a job well done.
