Garland, TX 75043

Dear Mike,

On behalf of the entire Lewisville Fire Department I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the services that you provided to our Department. Anyone in the fire service or for that matter, any city manager, can tell you just how important a fire department’s ISO rating can be. First and foremost, it can serve as an instrument to determine just how well you are prepared for firefighting and where you may need improvements. Secondly, if it is done right it can have a significant impact on your communities insurance premiums. It’s a process that when you look really close at it, never ends.

Your experience and expertise made our evaluation process run about as smooth as you could wish for. You are a man of integrity and a professional in your field. Your ethics are extremely high and I’m so very proud to have made your acquaintance. Our Fire Department and City as a whole have benefited greatly as a direct result of your service. Furthermore, I would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone that is considering or entering into their ISO evaluation process.

In closing, if I can ever be of any assistance to you or is anyone ever desires to discuss our experience with your firm, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Lasky
Fire Chief
