Message from the Fire Chief
Welcome to Clearwater Fire & Rescue!
It is my honor and privilege to welcome you to Clearwater Fire & Rescue’s website. It is our responsibility to provide our citizens with the utmost professional fire suppression, emergency medical services, and fire prevention & life safety services. We also take pride in providing state-of-the-art training to our firefighters and paramedics for their safety and yours. Clearwater Fire & Rescue has been awarded ISO Rating 1 and became an internationally accredited fire department by CFAI in 2016. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication we bestow and will continue to provide each and every day. Through a multitude of resources and support from the community, we will continue to provide the highest level of service to the citizens and visitors of Clearwater.
I believe communication and collaboration are two vital components to successfully reach the goals and objectives we set forth to obtain a highly effective, professional all hazards fire department. We will provide information on our website, through Facebook, and Twitter. I encourage our community and employees to provide input and constructive feedback that we can use to enhance our operations.
Working together we can validate the Clearwater Fire and Rescue Vision Statement: “To advocate and sustain a leading emergency service organization with a focus on quality, cost effectiveness, and all-hazard mitigation that exceeds our customer’s expectations”.
