Fire Department celebrates Class 1 Rating

Posted: May 10, 2024

Evaluators from the Insurance Services Office (ISO) on Thursday presented Fire Chief Steve Klotz with a certificate of recognition in honor of the Tinley Park Fire Department achieving a Class 1 Rating, which is the best rating possible and indicates that the Fire Department is well-equipped to handle fire emergencies. 

The Village was rated based on the readiness of the Tinley Park Fire Department, the Tinley Park Public Works Department's Water Division, and the Village's 911 Communications. Evaluators also took into account what the Fire Department is doing beyond its typical day-to-day operations and how it educates the community.

Tinley Park is one of only 29 fire departments in Illinois that enjoy a Class 1 rating.
