Smoke Detector Blitz

  
On the morning of November 21, 2017 Riverview Fire fighters responded to the 2000 block of Murvale for a residential structure fire.  Upon arrival, firefighters were met with heavy fire through the roof.  Sadly a male in his 40’s perished in this fire.  This prompted Chief Goldstein to partner up with the American Red Cross to do a “smoke detector blitz” in the area of devastation. 

On December 2nd, the Riverview firefighters, along with the American Red Cross, the Christian EMS crews from units 4917 and 4937, and Jennings Mayor Yolanda Austin, canvassed the neighborhood and were very successful in installing 57 smoke detectors.  We made 29 homes safer that day!

Chief Goldstein states that our mission isn’t complete until every home in the Riverview Fire Protection district has working smoke detectors.  If you are in need of one to be installed in your home, please call us (314) 867-3889.  We will schedule an install of a FREE smoke detector in your home at our earliest convenience!!!

ISO Public Protection Classification 3 - effective December 1, 2017

In 2014, Riverview Fire Protection District had an ISO rating of Class 4.  Jennings Fire Department was a Class 5. Insurance Service Office (ISO) re-evaluates every five to ten years to determine if the ratings have gone up, or down.  The last time Riverview Fire Protection District (prior to the merge with Jennings Fire Department) was rated was in 2004.  In order to improve our ISO classification (improvement is denoted by a lower number), there are many criteria that need to be met, some of which include: number of personnel on the fireground, district training, mutual aid training, water supply in the district, etc.

It is with great pleasure that we can announce to our District that we have met the criteria to lower our classification since Chief Keith Goldstein has joined our team in 2016. Chief Goldstein worked with ISO in the Riverview Fire Protection District for the the first time since the merge with Jennings Fire Department.  As a result, all areas that Riverview Fire Protection District provides service for now have a Public Protection Classification of 3.  


What does the ISO Classification mean to our residents and commerical business owners:  
ISO has lowered our rating and this can potentially be reflected by lowering your insurance costs.  Contact your insurance providers as soon as possible.


How can a RFPD resident/commerical business get information about lowering their insurance costs: Call your insurance provider and notify them of the lower classification effective 12/1/17.  The fire district will not be able to contact every insurance carrier.  Unfortunately, this is the responsiblity of the individuals owning or renting within our district. CALL YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDERS TODAY!


Out of 1,667 Fire Districts/Departments rated by ISO in the State of Missouri, we are within the top 124 with our new classifcation of 3!
