McKinney Fire Department was regraded a Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating of Class 1, the highest rating a fire department can achieve, by the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The city earned a Class 1 rating in 2014 and was regraded this year after the State of Texas adopted a new rating schedule. The rating goes into effect Nov. 1.
McKinney is one of approximately 150 communities in the country with a PPC rating of 1, which signifies superlative systems for the Fire Department, water distribution and public safety communications. The rating applies to all properties inside city limits within five road miles of a fire station.
“This rating demonstrates the city’s commitment toward providing exemplary public safety for our citizens,” said McKinney Fire Chief Danny Kistner.
