CONGRATULATIONS Holt Community Fire Protection District received an ISO rating of 4

Holt Fire is being changed from a five to a 4 ISO rating effective June 2023. Congratulations to Chief Robert Looper, the Holt Fire Board and our EMS team for all their hard work to achieve this goal. It is a great achievement, and they will continue to work toward getting a three rating in the next few years. Reach out to your insurance company, as some use the ISO rating to help in calculating your insurance premiums. A lower ISO rating can sometimes, save you around $75 to $100 a year on your insurance premiums. Please see the attached reports as how the rating is calculated.
