"What will it take?"

ISO (Insurance Services Office) sets the rate for what businesses pay for their fire recovery cost. The lower the number, the more likely that the involved fire department will save the building and belongings, thus lowering the payout cost to the owner/business.

Chief Furiegh did a great job seeing the need, planning ahead, and making hard choices to do what is best for his fire district. Congrats on the lower number for the citizens you serve, Chief!

ECFR could lower their number with similar steps, but it would require hard decisions by the BoCC to have the vision for proper staffing, proper apparatus placement, and overall safety and training for the firefighters of ECFR.
