ISO CLASS 1

Bexar County ESD No. 2 (BxCESD2) was awarded an ISO Class 1 rating on December 1, 2021. This is the best rating a fire department can achieve and is held by fewer than 1% of the nearly 46,000 rated fire departments and communities in the United States. Only 74 out of 2,800 Fire Departments in Texas are rated at an ISO Class 1. 

The ISO Class 1 rating is significant for the citizens and businesses of BxCESD2 as it shows improvements in response time, personnel, training, water supply, and dispatch services. In addition, the ISO Class 1 rating applies to all residents and businesses that are within 5 miles of a fire station regardless of the proximity to a fire hydrant. Less than 20 Fire Departments in the State of Texas have an ISO Class 1 rating in both areas with and without hydrants, which BxCESD2 is proudly one of them. With these same efforts, BxCESD2 was able to help Bexar County ESD No. 6 achieve an ISO Class 2, which applies to all residents and businesses that are within 5 miles of a fire station regardless of the proximity to a fire hydrant. 

If you are a resident within Bexar County ESD No. 2 or Bexar County ESD No. 6 boundaries and are within 5 miles of a fire station, we highly recommend contacting your insurance company and reporting the new rating as this should have a positive effect on your home insurance premium.
