What is our ISO rating and accreditation status?

 Arvada Fire has been awarded a Class 1 Public Protection Classification (PPC) from the Insurance Services Office (ISO). A Class 1 rating is the highest possible fire protection class rating and is determined based on how well a fire response agency can protect the community it serves.

Additionally, we are internationally accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). Accredited agencies are often described as being community-focused, data-driven, outcome-focused, strategic-minded, well organized, properly equipped, and properly staffed and trained.

Arvada Fire is one of just eight fire agencies in Colorado and one of 114 nationally with a Class 1 ISO rating and international accreditation. Less than one percent of fire agencies across the country earn a Class 1 rating.
