Workers Compensation Survey

As the saying goes, “third time a charm?” so am going to request one final time your assistance in completing and submitting the attached survey. Also attached is a brief summary of the issue prompting this survey.

If you have previously submitted the survey then I truly appreciate your time and there is no need to re-submit.

Again, so as to ease any concerns, the gmail address to submit your response is legitimate. It was established solely to collect the survey information.

I too am asking that you distribute this email/survey to your neighboring departments so as to ensure we reach out to all that we can.

If you have any questions or need further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

There is no doubt an option needs to be identified to address worker’s compensation insurance premiums.

The deadline for submission is May 20th!

Help Patch A Broken Heart

Help PatchWhen a firefighter dies in the line-of-duty, their loved ones are left with unique challenges as they begin to rebuild their lives. Finding others who can empathize with their loss can be a struggle in itself. Fortunately, survivors of fallen firefighters have a place to go each year to find support, comfort, and resources they need as well as the chance to make friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.

In spring 2014,the Missouri Fire Service Funeral Assistance Team, with cooperation from the City of Clayton Fire Department have been selected to host of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) annual Survivors Conference. This is truly an honor to be selected to showcase our wonderful city, region and state – and show the survivor families that WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

This conference will bring hundreds of surviving family members of our Nations Fallen Firefighters to St. Louis, where they will share memories and find comfort being among others who share their loss. They will also attend workshops geared toward taking those painful steps toward rebuilding their lives.

While official dates have not yet been determined, we are beginning our capital campaign, raising funds to offset the costs associated with hosting this conference. Over the next 15 months, we will be soliciting our fire service friends, businesses, corporations, along with our firefighters and fire departments to raise funds to offset many of the planned activities for that week.

To kick off our campaign, we are reaching out to our Fire Agencies with a simple sponsorship request –
