    A fire district's rating is based on ISO reviews of the fire fighting capabilities of individual communities. The schedule measures the major elements of a community's fire suppression system and develops a numerical grading called a Public Protection Classification.

    East Umatilla County Rural Fire Protection District is rated at "6/6Y 10W"

    Every year the fleet goes through a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) certification process to ensure all pumps, hoses, and ladders are able to meet set standards and have the ability to perform under emergency circumstances.
