BG retains its ISO 2 rating
Bowling Green has retained its ISO Class 2 fire service rating, Municipal Administrator John Fawcett told city council Monday night.
"Class 2 is outstanding," Fawcett said. Class I is the highest rating possible and there are none in Ohio and only 61 in all of the United States.
Fawcett said there are 592 cities with Class 2 ratings in the U.S.
"ISO visits every seven to 10 years looking at water supply and related factors. This rating has a direct affect on the insurance for homes, businesses and industries. The higher the rating, the lower the premium," Fawcett said.
More overhead wires removed
