Coat Drive For Children In Need

Coat Drive For Children In Need

Clovis Police Corporal Dustin Dodd, joined by Officer Scott Borsch, is renewing his winter coat drive for children in the City of Clovis this holiday season.

Last year, the public and members of the police department donated a total of 475 new or gently used coats and jackets for those in need.

Donors are encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats to any of the following partner locations: Caltrans, which provided the drop off bins at area stores and churches; Target Corporation; Walmart Supercenter on Herndon Avenue; Kohl's at Sierra Vista Mall and all Clovis CVS stores.

Several area churches are accepting donations as well.

The goal is to provide a coat for every child in need in the Clovis Unified School District this winter season.

The coat drive runs through December 15th.

Please note, there are drop-off bins located in several Fresno stores as well.

City of Clovis Awarded

City of Clovis Awarded Class 2 Rating by the Insurance Services Office

 

The City of Clovis is pleased to announce that it was recently surveyed by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) to determine its Public Protection Classification (PPC) and effective February 1, 2015, the City of Clovis will be upgraded to a Class 2 rating.  

Using this rating scale, ISO objectively reviews the fire protection capabilities of the community and assigns a Public Protection Classification number from 1 to 10.  Class 1 represents exemplary fire protection in the community and Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire suppression programs do not meet minimum recognition criteria. ISO evaluates a community approximately once every ten (10) years or when major department changes occur.  The City of Clovis received a Class 4 rating in 1988, a Class 3 rating in 2001 and in 2015, will be upgraded to a Class 2.
