Wayne Township Fire Department has an ISO Class 1 Rating
A few years ago Trustee Harris asked the Administration to look into what it takes to improve the Wayne Township Fire Department (WTFD) ISO rating of Class 3. At the time Operations Chief Dillon, Firefighter Wymer and several others were tasked to evaluate the last rating in 2012 and see how they could improve their next evaluation that should be coming in 2018.
The team put together some recommendations which include Target Solutions, equipment for reserve apparatus and some other record keeping and training requirements.
MSD Wayne Receives $1.2 Million Grant from
Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation
The MSD of Wayne Township has been awarded grant funding of more than $1.2 million from the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation to help educate students on substance abuse and improve students’ social and emotional well-being. The grant is part of Prevention Matters – a three-year initiative launched by the Fairbanks Foundation.
MSD Wayne was one of 24 grant recipients in Marion County. Our
schools are part of an initiative that is projected to serve 71,112 students across 151 Marion County schools by the 2020-21 school year.
Prevention Matters funding will help our schools deliver evidence-based prevention programs to students beginning this school year. The programs we have selected are designed to help improve academic achievement, attendance, and classroom behavior. These programs can reduce bullying and violence as well.
The grant funding will be used to support teacher/staff training and curriculum materials, and MSD Wayne will be supported by third-party prevention
experts paid for by the Fairbanks Foundation to ensure effective delivery of our selected programs and maximum benefit to our students.
On Friday they received their report and we are excited to announce that they are now an ISO Class 1 Fire Department. Getting an ISO Class 1 rating is a big accomplishment and one more reason everyone should be proud to be part of the Wayne Township Fire Department.
WTFD will be the 2nd Class 1 fire department in the State of Indiana and 320th in the USA.
When the rating takes effect in the near future this will also change how insurance is rated for homes and businesses in Wayne Township. The ISO class 1 rating will save homes in our service area some money but will save Business a significant amount of money.
Thank you to everyone that has worked hard to improve their rating.
