ISO Rating

All fire departments are subjected to an ISO rating. The official name for this rating is the Public Protection Classification or PPC, but it’s informally called a fire score. The PPC score is a rating of how efficiently your fire department serves your local community.

You’re assigned a score between 1 and 10, with lower numbers indicating a better score. High ISO scores can increase home insurance rates in the community.  As of October 1, 2019, The City of Cheboygan improved their ISO public protection rating to be a 5 for properties located within five road miles of the Cheboygan Fire Station.
