We are proud to have received a Class 1 community rating by the Insurance Services Office (ISO).  This distinguished rating is a direct result of the collaborative efforts of our firefighters, public works staff, 911 dispatchers, and the ongoing support of the City Council to make North Kansas City a safe, attractive place to live, work, visit, play, and do business. 

North Kansas City previously held a Class 2 rating. ISO evaluates approximately 50,000 fire departments or fire districts across the United States. Of those, less than 400 currently have a Class 1 rating. There are currently only 6 cities with a Class 1 rating in Missouri.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2011, more than 1.3 million fires were reported in the United States. These fires caused more than 3,000 civilian deaths, 17,500 civilian injuries, and $11.7 billion in property damage.

Although it is impossible to ensure that your residence is completely protected from a fire, many fires are preventable. There are common fire safety measures that can help decrease the chance of a fire occurring in your home. If a fire should occur, early detection is vital in saving lives. Remember, it doesn’t take raging flames and extreme heat to kill or injure. Smoke from slow moving or smoldering fires is just as deadly. Smoke alarms can jolt you and your family awake at night, and help provide additional time that is critical to escape even when the family is not asleep. The following preparedness tips can allow your family to react quickly in case of a fire emergency:
