What is the City of Abilene's ISO rating?

The City of Abilene's Public Protection Classification (PPC) rating is 1 (1 being best and 10 being worst). In 1998, the Texas Department of Insurance began using a Fire Suppression Rating Schedule, the system used in all other states, which grades fire protection on the basis of a city's actual fire exposure and water flow necessary to control fires wherever they occur. The detailed reports of inspections are now carried out by ISO, a private organization, overseen by the Texas State Fire Marshal.
