Barling FD Receives Highest Possible ISO Rating


It’s not luck or chance, but through skill, determination and hard work that the Barling Fire Department has achieved the highest ISO rating possible.

The Insurance Services Office rating of “1” reflects positively on the city’s residential property insurance rates. Barling Fire Chief Tommy Sizemore is no stranger to the mark of excellence, however. Each of the stations he has lead have attained this prestigious level.

This commitment to service caught the attention of Governor Asa Hutchinson. Last month, Sizemore received a letter dated August 15, 2019. In that letter the Governor, appointed Sizemore as a member of the Arkansas 911 board.

“I appreciate your willingness to serve the public and I am counting on your wise counsel and advice as you accept this position of responsibility,” stated Hutchinson. “I look forward to your participation and support as we work together to shape the future of Arkansas.”

Sizemore’s term will run through July 24, 2021. Congratulations to Sizemore and the Barling Fire Department on this monumental achievement!
