The Auburn Fire Department is among the best of the best.
At a ceremony at the department’s headquarters on Wednesday morning Chief Joe Morabito was presented with a certificate indicating that the department now has a Class 1 Public Protection Certification. Chief Morabito is proud to lead one of the elite departments among the more than 45,000 fire departments in the country.
Auburn is one of only six departments in New York State to attain Class 1 Public Protection Certification from the Insurance Services Office. Mayor and former Fire Chief Michael Quill says the ISO rating will benefit all of Auburn.
Both credit a team effort from firefighters as well as the city’s water department staff for obtaining near perfect marks in the ISO survey.
