Who We Are...

ISO class 1 logoWe are an ISO Class 1 Department with 253 total personnel and 12 Fire stations. We serve 107,697 residents in a 64+ square mile area. The Class 1 insurance rating for the City of Concord is determined by the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Office of State Fire Marshal’s Public Protection Rating Program. This program is based on the principle provider of insurance underwriting, rating and statistical information to the insurance industry in the United States (Insurance Services Office –ISO). One of the key information elements that insurers use in the underwriting and rating process for property insurance policies is ISO's classification of a jurisdiction's fire protection delivery system. Information regarding the fire department, water supply, fire alarm system, and fire protection area boundaries are critical to insurers providing insurance coverage to citizens of a community.

The Department partners with each City department and the community to provide effective and efficient fire suppression, emergency medical care, life safety education, fire inspections, code enforcement, fire investigations, hazardous materials response, and specialized rescue while maintaining a high level of training and personnel development.
