La Vergne Fire and Rescue earns ISO 2 rating

La Vergne FRD

The La Vergne Fire and Rescue Department has received a new 2/2X ISO rating from the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The rating is the result of continuing efforts by the fire rescue department to provide the best assistance to residents and visitors in need of emergency services and will go into effect on May 1. La Vergne is one of only 36 departments within the state of Tennessee to have obtained an ISO 2 rating. La Vergne Fire Chief Ronnie Beasley attributes the lower ISO classification to a change in administrative processes, training, documentation, and gaining a better understanding of available water in the city. Lower ISO ratings can decrease home insurance rates in the community. Residents are encouraged to contact their insurance providers to see if the new ISO rating could decrease their premiums or payments.
