Clearview Township Critical Emergency Alerts
Clearview Township offers a free emergency notification system that delivers registered users emergency notifications during critical events like fires, floods and extreme weather, by app notifications, telephone, text (SMS) or email.
In times of crisis, it is important that residents have access to trusted, timely and accurate information to ensure their own safety and that of their family and loved ones. In response to this need, Clearview Township has chosen Voyent Alert!, a Canadian-based multi-purpose communication service, as the communication service provider for these kinds of events.
Public Engagement & Education
The Clearview Fire and Emergency Services Department actively provides public engagement, outreach and education through a variety of formats. For example, the department visits schools in the Township on an annual basis to teach fire safety and home safety about dangerous substances and chemicals commonly found within a home.
The department is also active within the community attending many events and festivals for both public engagement and medical coverage.
In addition, the department participates in Fire Prevention Week with the National Fire Prevention Association.
