It should be noted that this list does not constitute nor imply an endorsement; users should make their own assessment of the company being considered. The 2014 edition of NFPA 1851 does not allow for anything other than verified ISPs and users should ask to see the third-party verification documentation. For scope of verification, contact information, and date verification was issued, you may view the corresponding third-party certificate available at the verifier's website:
One way to evaluate services being considered is to request names and contact numbers of fire departments who have used the ISP under consideration in the past.
