County VFD’s Earn Praise As ISO Ratings Improve


The Sierra County Commission’s May 17 meeting agenda included a presentation from Fire Administrator Paul Tooley. The report highlighted recent improvement in ISO (Insurance Service Office) ratings and related funding increases, earned by volunteer fire departments (VFD) throughout the county. The presentation also outlined proprietary software developed by Tooley, through which many of the recent improvements by area fire departments were identified and subsequently addressed.
