Two Clearfield County fire departments discuss official merger

RAMEY – The idea of merging the Clearfield County fire departments of Houtzdale and Ramey is still alive.

Members of both fire companies met recently for breakfast to discuss possible consolidation and build camaraderie.

The two departments agree that joining forces would help establish a more effective fire response and prevention system for both communities.

A lack of volunteers, stagnant income sources, and inflation have been given as reasons for why the Ramey and Houtzdale fire departments are pushing towards an official merger.
