How it Began
The Clinton City Fire Department was formed in 1975 with a dozen spirited volunteers under the direction of Fire Chief Lloyd Brown. The department received 2 old fire engines (a 1944 Seagraves and a 1943 Chevrolet) from the Utah Forestry Service.
Today 40 years later, the Clinton City Fire Department is manned 24 hours a day and is 33 Firefighters strong (16 Part-time and 17 Full Time).
The Clinton City Fire Station houses the following trucks:
- 1 “Engine” Class A Pumper (Smeal 1997)
- 1 “Quint” Ladder Truck (Smeal 2007)
- 1 Brush Truck (Ford 1997)
- 1 Special / Technical Response Trailer
- 3 Advanced Life Support (AEMT) Ambulances
- 1 Paramedic Response Truck
At the present time, the Clinton Fire Station is manned 24 hours a day with a minimum manning of 6 personnel. On-call paid personnel assist with staffing requirements as needed. The Clinton City Fire Department takes great pride in its training and education programs providing many opportunities to gain more knowledge and experience.
The Department also provides First-Aid and CPR opportunities to its community members upon request. Station personnel are always willing to facilitate with station tours, however, it is recommended to call and make appointments when possible.
The Fire Department and its members are more involved with its community than by merely responding to over 1,000 emergency calls per year. Countless hours are spent at local activities and safety fairs, visits with local schools to teach the kids about fire safety. The Clinton Fire Department also participates in fund raises for organizations such as Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
The Clinton City Fire Department is currently establishing a city-wide CERT program
in conjunction with the Citizen Corps Program
