Hutto Fire Rescue Plans For Future

July 6, 2012

Hutto Fire Rescue, or Williamson County Emergency Services District No. 3, is implementing processes to improve fire protection within the district, which includes cost-effective measures in the short term and planning for additional fire stations in the future.

Fire Chief Scott Kerwood said the fire district is working to lower its rating from the Insurance Services Office, a private company that measures fire protection in communities throughout the nation on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the best.

The lower ISO rating could bring benefits that include lower insurance premiums for home and business owners as well as economic development.

The district received an ISO rating of 4 in 2005 within areas served by fire hydrants and within five miles of a fire station. Because of both growth in the population it serves and the department itself in the past seven years, Kerwood said the city plans to have ISO re-evaluate the emergency services district in early 2013.
