Help Us Help You 

At the fire department, we work hard at keeping your fire insurance rates low. Insurance Service Offices (ISO) rate fire departments across the country on their capabilities and services. These ratings correspond to a rate charged for fire insurance by insurance companies. We currently have a rating of 4 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the top rating and 10 being the lowest. The Fulton Fire Department takes pride in this rating and continues efforts to improve it.  

We keep the fire hydrants color coded for water flow rates. The hydrants are silver with blue, green, orange or red color-coded rings. Please do not change the colors, plant vegetation or block the fire hydrant. Keep grass trimmed and snow away from blocking a fire hydrant. Also, when in public places, be aware of fire lanes so we can guarantee access to these places in the event of an emergency. 


The Fulton Fire Department has adopted and enforces the 2015 International Fire Codes including Burn Permits per Code 307.1 and Fire Hydrant Obstructions per Code 507.5.4.
