Clearfield City Emergency Services
Emergency Management is a coordinated effort of all levels of government (local, state and federal) working together with business and industry, community based organizations and volunteers to effectively meet the challenges posed by all types of emergencies and disasters.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
WHY PARTICIPATE IN THE CERT TRAINING?
It is like paying for car insurance. A person might never need either; but if the occasion arises, having the CERT training, just like car insurance, means that the person is prepared and ready to help.
HOW DO I JOIN?
CERT members receive 24 hours of initial training. CERT is offered in the spring and fall and provided to residents of the city 15 years of age and older. Pre-registration is required. There will be a fee for basic supplies

CSERG – Amateur Radio Group
CSERG is a group of our amateur radio operators that have organized themselves to promote readiness and communication in times of emergencies or disasters.
CSERG participates in a weekly radio net designed to train and exercise radio operator skills. This net is held each Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. on a radio frequency of 145.770 MHz (simplex) linked with 448.825 MHZ (Clearfield repeater with a tone of 123). On the last Wednesday of the month, CSERG meets at the Clearfield city building in place of the net at 8:30 p.m.bo.
The city has developed a radio communications room for the purpose of providing support to local dispatch centers and Emergency Operations Centers. Radio equipment has been made available to licensed amateur radio operators to complete their communications assignment from a dedicated Emergency Command Center. Trained radio operators receive and pass along critical messages aiding victims and decision makers. CSERG also serves in community activities that are not considered emergencies as well (including large events such as a city parade or festival) and provides critical surveillance for locations where potential hazards may be developing and immediate notification is required.
