Unit II Project

Community ISO Rating

For this assignment, you will research your community, and calculate a rating similar to ISO/PPC though NOT using an ISO/PPC rating scale. For this project, you will be using our own rating scale, which is found in the grid below.

  Emergency Communications Fire Department Water Supply Community Efforts Risk
  System Structure System Reduction
0 No emergency call center Non staffed No public water No programs or
      supply enforcement
1 Uses direct dial 7 or 10 digit Staffed by first No public water Annual fire prevention
  number to reach either police or responders only for supply; only “dry activities limited to schools
      wells” or ponds, only

 

  fire ; i.e. 222-1212 or 222-2323 or EMS calls; stations lakes, and streams  
         
         
  901-222-1212 or 901-222-2323 are not open 24/7 for drafting  
2 County 911 system non Enhanced Staffed by part-time Municipal fresh water Annual fire prevention
  system; separate police & fire paid-per-call EMS treatment; no activities limited to schools
  dispatching personnel only; one hydrants and senior centers
    station open 24/7    
3 County E-911 (Enhanced) system Staffed by full-time Municipal fresh water Annual fire prevention
  with central police & fire paid EMS personnel treatment; hydrants activities and daily fire
  dispatching only; only one station spaced greater than inspections of high risk
    open 24/7 1,000 feet apart occupancies
4 Municipal 911 system; non Staffed by full-time Municipal fresh water Annual fire prevention and
  Enhanced system; separate police paid EMS and fire treatment; fire public fire safety programs
  & fire dispatching suppression hydrants spaced for all audiences
    personnel; limited greater than 500 feet  
    number of stations apart  
    24/7    
5 Municipal E-911 (Enhance) Staffed by full-time Municipal fresh water Staffed full-time Fire
  system with central call intake paid EMS and fire treatment; fire Prevention Division; annual
  center with central dispatch or suppression hydrants spaced 500 fire prevention activities; fire
  police and fire dispatch on own personnel; stations or less apart; total inspections; fire
  after E-911 call is received positioned community coverage investigations & code
        enforcements

For this project, you will conduct an ISO/PPC “like” analysis of your community. Using a five-point rating scale where 0 is the worst and 5 is the best, analyze and rate your community’s ability to address the four components used by ISO/PPC in its rating system. Keep in mind that this rating is similar to, but not the same as, the ISO/PPC rating scale.

Primary differences include: this scale is backwards in that 0 = worst and 5 = best, and greater details are not included in each of the four categories.

Using the rating-scale grid from above, analyze your own community’s fire service capabilities. If you are a fire service employee, you will most likely know how your community operates and what services (emergency communications, fire department structure, water supply, and risk reduction) are in place.

If you are non-fire service employee, you will most likely be able to assess two categories, emergency communications and water supply, by simply knowing your emergency call system and seeing fire hydrants on the streets. For the two remaining categories, you will need to call your local fire department and speak to a firefighter, or fire officer, who should be pleased to answer your questions. You could also, time permitting, take a trip to the fire department and ask for a tour for answers to your questions.

To finish the project, you will need to construct a grid similar to the one above, or identify each of the four categories with their corresponding numerical rating number. Once you have analyzed your community and composed your numbering system, write a brief paragraph for each of the four categories that supports your number selection for each category.

There is no “right” or “wrong” response here, as every student may have a differently constructed community. Your final paper should be written in proper APA format, and include citations for sources as needed.

You must have a title page, double-spaced, with only the following information written in the center: title of paper, your name, and university name. No reference page is required, no abstract is required, and no headers are required.

The finished paper should be a minimum of three pages of written grid/graph and narration; however, not more than four pages in length. This page requirement does not include your cover page.
