Our Fire Marshal Cliff Robinson received the Paul Harris Fellow award December 6th, 2018 in appreciation for his service to North County. Cliff not only makes the Florissant Fire District safer place to live but assists Ferguson, Black Jack, Spanish Lake, Riverview and North East Fire Districts as well.
Santa is visiting kids and their families in local neighborhoods from 6:00-8:00pm in the evening. If he doesn’t make it down your street, you can also visit with him from 8:00-9:00pm at the end of his route. Please check our Facebook page for the most recent news about which neighborhood he will be visiting.
And don’t forget, Santa relies on his Firefighter elves, so a high volume of emergency calls may affect his visit. Any changes to the schedule will be noted on Facebook as soon as possible.
This morning, Firefighters Joe Alberts, Eric Balmes and Captain Chris Alber participated in the Dream Factory Christmas shopping event. This event involves firefighters from all across the area taking special needs children shopping for their parents at Dillards at South County Center. This is always a fun and humbling event. This year, we escorted Lily.
The Florissant Valley Fire Protection District will once again be a drop-off point for Toys for Tots.

Early Thursday morning in the 2000 block of Splendor Drive in Florissant, Florissant Valley Firefighters responded within 3 minutes to a residential fire with two occupants trapped in separate bedrooms. The patients were extricated from the burning home through bedroom windows in the rear of the house. Fortunately, the doors to both bedrooms were closed, which effectively kept the blaze from spreading into the rooms with the occupants. Both patients were transported by FVFPD EMS to hospitals for treatment. Departments from Blackjack and Hazelwood were on scene in mutual aid.
Several news media outlets did stories on the fire and the rescue. The home had no working smoke detectors. The entire incident was an important lesson on the value of smoke detectors and safety actions like always closing bedroom doors while you are sleeping.
Such actions are truly life-saving things to know. If you have any questions, feel free to call the FVFPD at (314) 837-4894.
