Letter to the Editor
April 11, 2014
I would like to hereby congratulate Chief Jason Buss and the other Officers and Firefighters of the Northfield Village Fire Department on the results of the Department's recent Insurance Service Office evaluation. The Department has improved its ISO overall score on the 1 to 10 rating scale from a 6 to a 3 (lower is better). The revised ISO rating, which will take effect on July 1, 2014, ranks the Northfield Village Fire Department in the top 6% of all fire departments in the United States. The dramatic improvement in the Department's ISO rating should permit the Village's businesses and residents to receive more favorable rates on their insurance premiums. This independent evaluation from such an important national organization has confirmed what the Village residents and businesses, surrounding fire departments, and nearby emergency health professionals already know. The Northfield Village Fire Department has taken great strides forward since Chief Buss was appointed Fire Chief in December of 2012. The Department is more efficient, better trained, more organized, and more engaged with the public and surrounding Departments than at any time in the Department's history. The Village's improved ISO rating is the direct result of Chief Buss and his firefighters' hard work and dedication toward continuously improving the Department. I am extremely proud of their momentous achievement.
Jesse J. Nehez, Mayor Village of Northfield
