Lubbock receives rare top rating for fire protection

LFR receives top rating

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The city of Lubbock and Lubbock Fire Rescue have earned a Class 1 Public Protection Classification from the Insurance Services Office.

This means Lubbock is in the top one percent of all cities classified by the ISO.

Only 300 out of 48,000 cities in the U.S. received this rating, based on the emergency services and community risk reduction programs.

The rating goes into effect on Dec. 1 of this year. LFR says it could mean lower residential and commercial property insurance rates for Lubbock citizens.
