The City of Aiken’s ISO Class 2 fire rating has been renewed. This rating is achieved through various means including the number of trained firefighters we have on staff, the condition of our fire equipment, our annual fire safety inspections, and condition of our city fire stations. In 1982, we were the first fire department in South Carolina to receive a Class 2 rating. This rating will result in continued low fire insurance premium rates for your business and home. Our Public Safety Department puts a great deal of labor, vision, and resources toward retaining this rating.
