Founded in 1948, the Pasadena Fire Marshal’s Office is committed to excellence both in professional development of its members and protecting its citizens from the effects of fire. This commitment to fire safety was recognized by Insurance Service Organization (ISO) in 2005 when the city was awarded an ISO rating of “Class 2”. ISO ratings are used to help establish fair premiums for fire insurance — generally speaking the better the class rates, the lower the insurance premiums paid by our citizens. Pasadena’s ISO “Class 2” rating puts the city in the top 1% of the 43,245 communities in the United States evaluated by ISO.
