Notice- Fire Chief for the Day

As part of Fire Prevention Week, two new Clearview Township Fire Chiefs will be sworn in Thursday, October 12, 2017, but just for the day.

Children attending a Clearview Elementary School from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4 were eligible to win the contest to become a Fire Chief for the Day. Colouring contest sheets, which ask students to review smoke alarm and home escape plan safety, were circulated to all Clearview Elementary Schools during the week of August 29th. The contest winners will be drawn randomly from all submitted entries.

The winners will be picked up at their home in a fire truck and will be sworn into office by Mayor Vanderkruys.

“Clearview Fire and Emergency Service developed this contest to encourage children to think about smoke alarms and home escape plan safety,” explained Fire Chief Colin Shewell. “The bonus is that the two winners will get to experience all of the excitement of being involved with the fire department.”

The new Fire Chiefs will be available for photos with Fire Chief Colin Shewell, Sparky the Fire Dog, and a Clearview Township Fire Truck at Clearview Fire Station 1, 6993 Highway 26 in Stayner at 11am on October 12, 2017.

Notice- Creemore Jail 125th Year Celebration

posted Sep 30, 2017, 7:46 AM by Tim Hendry   [ updated Sep 30, 2017, 7:46 AM ]

Notice- Creemore Jail 125th Year Celebration

CLEARVIEW, ON- Clearview Township is proud to announce that the Creemore Jail will be hosting a special 125th-anniversary celebration on Saturday, October 7th, 2017 at 12:00pm.

Media and members of the public are invited to join volunteers, members of Council and Mayor Vanderkruys to celebrate the history of the ‘Smallest Jail in North America”.

The celebration will feature area musicians Bob Presner and Fran Webster, stories of the jail, greetings from local dignitaries, a special cake, and a few surprises.

History of the Creemore Jail

The small, 3-cell, stone jail, located on Library Street near the centre of the village, was built in 1892. Under the protection of the village Constable, for fifty years it served as a short-term jail as well as an occasional temporary shelter for itinerant persons. Changes in provincial policing in the 1940s brought the closing of Creemore’s jail along with many other local jails throughout the province.

In 1972, thanks to the efforts of local businessmen led by the editor of the village’s newspaper, The Creemore Star, the jail was refurbished and opened as a tourist attraction, with the claim that it is “The Smallest Jail in North America.” Although this claim has been disputed, no careful study of small jails has yet to be made.

Notice- Clearview Fire Project Zero

CLEARVIEW– Clearview Fire & Emergency Services is pleased to announce that the department has received 144 Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms through the Project Zero campaign which is supported by Enbridge Gas Distribution and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council.

The alarms will be distributed to seniors and families with young children throughout the Township. To receive an alarm, residents should contact Stephanie Ward at 705-428-6230 ext. 401 or by email at sward@clearview.ca.

“This is an excellent opportunity to work with our safety partners and enhance our smoke alarm and carbon monoxide program. Early detection is key and this program will be a valuable initiative to achieve this,” said Colin Shewell, Fire Chief Clearview Fire & Emergency Services. 

About Project Zero

The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council, partner Enbridge Gas Distribution, and Ontario municipal fire departments are working together to provide combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Ontario residents through the Project Zero campaign.

The objective of this unique campaign is to provide these alarms to fire departments for delivery to high-risk areas and individuals so that if deadly carbon monoxide or smoke is detected, residents will have the early warning they need to safely escape. The campaign also promotes awareness about the importance of properly maintaining fuel-fired appliances and installing and/or replacing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

Since the launch of the campaign in 2009, Enbridge has contributed over $700,000 to Project Zero, resulting in the distribution of more than 24,300 alarms in 80 Ontario communities where Enbridge operates.
