Fire Department Overview

An audit by the Insurance Services Office upgraded the Foster City Fire Department from a Class 3 to a Class 2 Fire Protection Rating effective December 2000.

Fire Protection Ratings range from Class 10 (least desirable) to Class 1 (best). The Insurance Services Office audits Fire Departments around the state every ten to fifteen years. Prior to being elevated to an ISO Class 2, the Foster City Fire Department held a Class 3 rating for 15 years.


The Fire Department protects lives, property and the environment from fire and exposure to hazardous materials, provides pre-hospital emergency medical care, offers programs which prepare our employees and citizens for emergencies and provides non-emergency services, including fire prevention and related code enforcement, emergency preparedness and fire prevention to residents, businesses and visitors of Foster City.
