The Public Protection Classification (PPC) program, is a tool developed by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) for property and casualty insurers to properly assess their risk by rating fire protection services throughout the United States.  Data is analyzed using a proprietary Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS).  

The FSRS assigns a PPC score between 1 and 10 to the department, with Class 1 representing "superior property fire protection" and Class 10 indicating that an area doesn't meet the minimum criteria set by the ISO. Most U.S. insurers of home and business properties use ISO's PPC when calculating premiums.  In general, the price of insurance in a community with a good PPC is lower than in a community with a poor PPC, assuming all other factors are equal.

  • Properties located within the boundaries of Winfield, within 5 road miles of a recognized fire station, and within 1,000 ft of a fire hydrant or suction point receive a PPC 3 rating. Any properties over 5 road miles from a recognized fire station are PPC 10.
  • Properties located within the boundaries of Cowley Co FD 7 and within 5 miles of a recognized fire station receive a PPC 8B rating.  Any properties over 5 road miles from a recognized fire station are PPC 10.
