Letter to Harrison's Businesses

The Harrison Fire Department will be coming to your business starting in 2017, all part of meeting ISO requirements. ISO stands for the Insurance Services Office, an organization that helps insurance providers determine the insurance rating on structures within a community. ISO auditors look at things like number of firefighters, fire station locations, fire hydrants, water system, and much more.

After the 2015 ISO audit it was discovered that although the fire department had completed pre-fire plans on many businesses in town, they now require every commercial property to be inspected and have pre-fire plan completed on a yearly basis.

Starting in 2017, the Harrison Firefighter’s will be making a greater effort to visit all of the businesses in the community. They will be looking for life safety hazards, pre-fire planning, and also checking for a current business license. The business license will be a crucial part of this process, because it will assist the firefighters with the locations and number of current businesses in town. If you have any questions regarding the business license process, please visit, or call the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce at 870-741-2659.

The fire department encourages business owners to go to the City of Harrison website,, click on the link to the Fire Department page, and review the form that will be used for the inspections. This will help businesses to familiarize themselves with the process. If you have any questions regarding the inspection form, please call the Harrison Fire Department at 870-741-6384.

Furthermore, the Harrison Fire Dept. will be offering a voluntary home fire inspection to address things like smoke detectors, escape plans and kitchen fires. For more information on this call 870-204-5398

As always, the goal of the Harrison Fire Department is to save lives and protect property, but the Department also has an obligation to strive to follow ISO guidelines in order to keep insurance rates low for the Harrison Community.


The officials of the Harrison Fire Dept.



Outdoor burning is not allowed unless you have approval of the Harrison Fire Dept.  You can obtain a burning permit by going to your nearest fire station during business hours.  The weather conditions dictate whether or not we are issuing burning permits.  The only thing that you can burn inside the city is yard waste, limbs, leaves and grass clippings.
