Tickets are $40 each and include the dinner, dance, and a cash drawing. Please call 618-248-5442 for tickets.
Check Your CO & Smoke Detectors
With the cold temperatures approaching, the Clin-Clair Fire Department would like to remind everyone to check the operation of your CO and smoke detectors for proper operation. If you do not have a CO detector PLEASE purchase one! If your detector does sound, get everyone out of the house and dial 911.
If residents of the Clin-Clair Fire Protection District are doing controlled burns on their property please be courteous to the members of the Fire Department and call Clinton County Dispatch at 618-594-4555 to advise them that you will be doing a controlled burn on your property. We do ask to stay near the controlled burn and advise the 911 dispatchers if it does get out of control, you (the owner) will call and request the fire department.
This will assist the dispatchers when they receive 911 calls for a controlled fire near your property by passers-by.
Receive Severe Weather Alert's on Your Cell Phone
The National Weather Service will begin providing WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERTS
(WEA) to MOBILE PHONES. For more details click here.
The Clin-Clair Fire Company would like to suggest everyone consider purchasing a weather radio so you can be notified of severe weather approaching our area. Although the town of Albers has tornado sirens, they are designed to be heard when you are outside; not within your home. The weather radios can be setup so when the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning, the radio actives immediately. There is no delay from the warning being issued to you being notified.
Visiting the Fire Station
The Clin-Clair Fire Department members would like to invite residents from our district to stop by the fire station any Monday night between 7PM - 8:30PM to see what we do every at the station. Your tax dollars and donations directly support the department so if you want to see it put to work, please stop by and give us a visit; we’ll be glad to show you and your family around.
