Everyone has questions about all kinds of issues related to Fire and Life Safety. We’ve organized some of the most common questions into separate categories – all available here. If you cannot find answers to your questions, please contact us directly at email@example.com. We’ll do our best to get you the answers you need promptly.
MySafe:Riverside is a public private partnership between the Riverside City Fire Department and the California Fire Prevention Organization. The result will be a coordinated initiative in public safety for residents and business operators in the City of Riverside.
Programs that reduce risk to the community are becoming know as “Community Risk Reduction,” or “CRR” initiatives. Typically developed and executed by fire/rescue agencies, the most common program involves home visits, including delivery of education and home inspection. MySafe:Riverside is actively involved in CRR within the State of California. MySafe:Riverside is careful to ensure it follows baseline standards as defined by the NFPA, USFA, as well as an independent fire/safety program called Vision 20/20. Our home safety educators utilize high technology software and other means to achieve measurable results. In addition, our educators will support CRR via distribution and installation of free smoke alarms to those in need.
Absolutely. The City of Riverside offers multiple Internet-driven web environments, including the Fire Department, Emergency Operations Center, as well as social media feeds on Facebook, Instagram and other channels.
The MySafe:Riverside website has been designed to be useful to three groups of people: first responders, teachers, and the general public. When first responders become partners, they gain access to a wide array of fire and life safety materials, including fire prevention materials for distribution to the public, safety initiatives, research materials, and other data useful to the overall process of fire prevention. In addition, becoming a partner gives fire departments the opportunity to request MySafe:Riverside join them in community risk reduction programs, such as home inspections and free smoke alarm distribution and installation. The same types of benefits are available to teachers who become members of the MySafe:Riverside fire/safety cadre. Finally, the website also has been designed for community involvement – meaning that our information and programs are available directly to the general public.
The MySafe:Riverside environment is ever-changing. Our team will continue to add material on a weekly basis – daily in some instances. As safety information is made available, we’ll post it here. As new videos are developed, we’ll publish them and issue a notification. Stay in touch and visit the site often.
The Riverside Fire Department and MySafe:Riverside members would be delighted to visit your school. Reach us via phone at 800-470-4946, or contact us via this website.
MySafe:Riverside is a unit of the California Fire Prevention Organization. All funding comes from grants and gifts. No funding currently comes from the City of Riverside or its various agencies. The 2016 MySafe:Riverside program is made possible, in part, due to a grant from the Fire Prevention and Safety grant section of FEMA.
The MySafe:Riverside website has been designed to be fully “responsive,” meaning it will auto-adjust for any sized computing device.

If you have problems viewing any of our video content, we suggest you first do a test to see if you can view videos posted to YouTube and Vimeo. Our video content has been designed to use an Internet technology called HTML-5, rather than the now antique and outdated Flash solution you may have heard about. If you find you can view YouTube or Flash videos, but not those within our website, please contact us at email@example.com If you cannot view videos on other streaming sites, check your browser for compatibility, or if viewing from work, check with your IT manager to see if sites that stream video have been blocked.
