5 The City of Kenners Fire Department currently possesses a PIAL rating of Class 2 This Class 2 rating was granted contingent on KFD making the necessary improvements and upgrades There is no funding to make the required improvements and upgrades to remain a Class 2 or to meet the goal of becoming a Class 1 fire department If KFD loses its Class 2 rating, the property insurance cost of Kenners citizens will increase; conversely, if KFD meets its goal of a Class 1 rating, Kenners citizens will see a decrease in property insurance cost St. Tammany Parish Residents are battling this issue as their fire class rating was not entered correctly by some insurance companies and dropped from a rating of three (3) to four (4) This has caused major increases in their homeowners insurance premiums Most importantly, a Class 1 fire department will provide better service and safety to the residents of Kenner

6 Rating deficiency exists as current employee schedule does not provide the most efficient use of manpower All facilities and equipment cannot be manned at all times NFPA recommends a firetruck be manned by 4 men at all times Currently, Kenner staffs a firetruck with 3 men Most local fire departments use a 56 hour per work week schedule Kenner does not possess the funding for this Kenners apparatus fleet is the oldest in the Greater New Orleans area, creating unreliability and high repair costs Most apparatus fleet is out of warranty; Some manufacturers are out of business, which creates high costs for repairs
