Insurance Services Office (ISO) Rating: 3
ISO's Public Protection Classification (PPC™) Service gauges the capacity of the local fire department to respond if flames engulf a property.
ISO collects information on a community's public fire protection and analyzes the data using their Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). They then assign a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 generally represents superior property fire protection, and Class 10 indicates that the area's fire-suppression program doesn't meet ISO's minimum criteria
Basic life support
AAFD is licensed through the Michigan Department of Community Health Emergency Medical Services Section as a non-transport Basic Life Support (BLS) service agency.
AAFD personnel are licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and have completed nearly 200 hours of classroom instruction, in addition attending to clinical shifts working in an emergency room and on an ambulance. Firefighters are able to perform emergency medical interventions such as blood glucose testing, advanced airway management via esophageal-tracheal intubation, and administration of epinephrine (via auto-injector) for severe allergic reactions.
Advanced Life Support (ALS) transport services are provided by Huron Valley Ambulance. HVA staffs its ambulances with paramedics who are capable of even more advanced pre-hospital emergency medical care.
