The city of Hutchinson will join an elite group of cities around the country in May when its insurance fire rating classification, or ISO, goes from a 3 to a 1.

The Insurance Service Office rating for Fire District 2, which covers a large portion of the county adjacent to the city will also improve, climbing from a 6 to a 4.

According to the ISO website, Fire Chief Steven Beer said, only six other cities in Kansas and 329 nationwide – out of more than 47,500 fire departments – have achieved a 1 rating.

The nearest is Wichita. Most of the others are in northeast Kansas.
