The new Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) contains the criteria North Carolina department of Insurance uses in reviewing the fire suppression capabilities of individual communities.
The schedule measures the major elements of a community’s fire suppression system and develops a numerical grade called a Public Protection Classification.
The new schedule continues to evaluate the three major categories of fire suppression: fire department, emergency communications, and water supply.
In addition, it includes a new Community Risk Reduction section that recognizes community efforts to reduce losses through fire prevention, public fire safety education, and fire investigation.
