The Granite Quarry Fire Department has earned a unique distinction that will potentially mean lower insurance rates for the town’s citizens.
The North Carolina State Fire Marshal’s Office conducted an assessment of the Granite Quarry Fire Department in November of 2020. The results of that assessment were then shared with The Insurance Services Office (ISO), the national insurance industry rating agency.
As a result of the assessment, the ISO issued the Town of Granite Quarry a rating designation of ISO Class 1. This is the highest designation attainable on the 10-point scale. Granite Quarry Fire Department joins the ranks of only 16 other fire districts out of the total 1,224 in North Carolina to attain this prestigious rating. Most of the other departments with ISO Class 1 ratings are large cities.
