Minooka Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the herald-news.com:

The Minooka Fire Protection District was recognized this week by the State Fire Marshal’s Office for receiving an ISO Class 1 certification, the 21st fire department in Illinois to receive it. To receive the certification the district was graded on factors such as communication, training, and the water service in the area they serve. In the Minooka district’s case, that meant working with the villages of Minooka and Channahon to ensure water service met the standards.

Becoming an ISO Class 1 department took years of preparation and a couple visits from the grader. One of the benefits for the community could be lower insurance ratings.
