CHAMPAIGN — It’s official: The Champaign Fire Department is among the best in the country. It started putting the ISO Class 1 decals on its trucks.
The Insurance Service Organization evaluates departments across the country and rates various criteria, including communication and fire safety education.
A better rating could mean better insurance rates for buildings in the area.
Fire officials say a lot of people helped make it happen.
Fewer than 200 departments, out of more than 48,000, picked up a Class 1 rating.
