FOR ALL EMERGENCY CALLS, PLEASE CALL 911
The Village of Hines Creek works in cooperation with Clear Hills County to provide fire services to their residents through the Hines Creek and Worlsey Fire Departments. Both the Hines Creek and Worsley Fire Departments have grown from very modest organizations operating separately, to an alliance in which both departments operate under the management of the Clear Creek Fire Commitee.
Regular training sessions and meetings of the Hines Creek Volunteer Fire Department are held on the first and third Monday of every month.
Develop people to work together while helping the community and people in distress, by extinguishing fires and preserving life and property from injury and destruction within the Village of Hines Creek and Clear Hills County.
