|Fire Ground Update|
|By Member Jeremy Ruffner|
|October 22, 2019|
Over the last year we have made upgrades and changes to Firegrounds in Clearfield County County. Fireground 9 is now simulcast and fireground 12 has been moved to the Western side of the County. These changes were made to help with radio issues to the north and to give us more firegrounds to use along Interstate I-80 when we experience multiple incidents along the I-80 corridor. In addition, we have made slight changes in other portions of the county to provide better coverage.
The new fireground changes will be as follows:
Fireground 12- Jefferson County line to Mile Marker 112
Fireground 9- Mile Marker 113 to Mile Marker 117
Fireground 2- Mile Marker 118 to Mile Marker 120
Fireground 3- Mile Marker 121 to Mile Marker 127
Fireground 9- Mile Marker 128 to Mile Marker 138
Please make every effort to use the newly assigned firegrounds when operating in the redefined areas. We do understand we always have pocket areas in the county were an assigned fireground does not work as well as another and have no issue with command decisions to change if the assigned fireground is not functional.
