Commissioner of Insurance and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey stopped by the Asheboro Fire Department’s Station 1 on March 9, 2023, to announce the department’s new Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating. ISO ratings are set by the NC Department of Insurance every five years following a thorough inspection of a fire department’s staffing, training, equipment, maintenance, water supply, and emergency communications.
After years of hard work to purchase new equipment, take specialized training, and become rescue certified, the Asheboro Fire Department was officially presented with its new rating of ISO 1, placing it in the top fire departments in North Carolina. “I’d like to congratulate Chief Summers for the department’s performance and for the hard work of all the department’s members,” said Causey.
“The citizens in the town of these districts should rest easy knowing they have a fine group of firefighters protecting them and their property in the case of an emergency.”
