ISO Public Protection Classification (PPC)

Insurance Services Office (ISO) is a source of information about property and liability risk. Insurance companies use ISO's Public Protection Classification (PPC) program to establish premiums for fire insurance.

The numerical PPC classification is assigned after evaluating a community's fire-suppression system using criteria in a manual called the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS).

YWPHI Fire Safety Committee is working with the Mariposa County Fire Department and NPS to identify what the community needs to do to be reclassified into a lower PPC. The Mariposa County Fire Department has successfully worked with other Mariposa County communities to have their PPC reduced.
