Gassville FD Auxiliary reception to recognize Class 2 ISO rating

The Gassville Fire Department Auxiliary will host a public reception Saturday afternoon from 2 until 4 in recognition of the city’s new Class 2 ISO rating. The reception will be held at the community center, located at 204 South School Street in Gassville.The fire station will be open to tour during the reception, and refreshments will be served.Last month, Mayor Jeff Braim and Fire Chief Michael Glotzl made the announcement of the new ISO rating, noting Gassville will be joining a membership shared by less than 1,600 other departments nationwide.

Mayor Braim said city officials had hoped to lower the department’s rating from a Class 4 to a Class 3. Braim said they were “ecstatic” to learn the department’s ISO rating has been lowered to a Class 2.

The Class 2 rating will stand until the ISO reassess the department. Glotzl says ISO is attempting to reassess fire departments every two years.

The department has 20 volunteer firemen.
