Clackamas Fire District #1 Improves Fire Protection Rating - 04/11/18

Clackamas Fire District #1 has received an improved Fire Protection Classification through the Insurance Services Office (ISO). Many insurance companies use ISO’s Fire Protection Rating for establishing fire insurance premiums for residential and commercial properties. The ISO rates from 1 to 10, with 1 being best. An improved rating should result in lower fire insurance premiums for those within the Clackamas Fire service area. 

ISO recently announced that Clackamas Fire’s Fire Protection Classification was upgraded to a Class 2. Previously Clackamas Fire had a protection classification of a Class 3, since it was last rated in 2005. In 2017, Boring Fire District #59 annexed into Clackamas Fire and prior to annexation that service area was a Class 3 and a Class 5 in rural areas. The new Class 2 rating applies to all areas protected by Clackamas Fire, to include the newly annexed areas.

The Public Protection Classification is assigned following a comprehensive review of all aspects of the district, available firefighting water supply, and public communication system. The district's improved rating is a direct result of their continued self-evaluation and improvement, and their focus of improving customer service. 

For more information about how this improvement by Clackamas Fire District #1 directly impacts your fire insurance premiums, the district recommends you contact your home insurance provider.

Clackamas Fire District #1's Division Chief Bill Conway was honored by Pamplin Media Group and the Royal Rosarians with the Newsmaker of the Year at the Royal Rosarian Newsmakers of the Year Dinner Banquet and Award Presentations on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

The Royal Rosarians proudly honored members of the community who have performed exceptional acts of heroism or outstanding humanitarian work without regard for personal safety, public recognition, or personal gain. The recipients were nominated by Portland-area media outlets, and their stories were told in words and pictures by the local news anchors, editors, and reporters who first publicized their heroic efforts.

Division Chief Conway was nominated by Angela Fox, publisher with Pamplin Media Group, for his off-duty save on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Conway was in the right place at the right time to help save the life of a patient in cardiac arrest. Conway was shopping at the Grocery Outlet, 15810 SE McLoughlin Blvd., Oak Grove, when he and his wife heard someone crash to the floor. Store employees called 911 immediately and Conway assessed the patient and found him to be unconscious and not breathing. Conway began chest compressions as Clackamas Fire firefighters from Oak Grove Station 3 and American Medical Response units responded to the scene. Thanks to Conway's quick actions and CPR training that led to saving a man's life.

Chief Fred Charlton said, "There were only seven awards presented and Clackamas Fire is extremely proud of Chief Conway and our firefighter crew from Oak Grove Station 3 who responded, and the overall success of our hands-only CPR program."

Newsmakers were awarded a Royal Rosarian bronze medallion and a framed certificate by the Prime Minister. K103- FM morning radio personalities, John Erickson and Bruce Murdock, returned and served as Masters of Ceremonies for a memorable evening where representatives of local media outlets presented their "Newsmaker" or newsworthy story to an audience of over 400 attendees, which included members of the Royal Rosarians.
