Roree Payment has just completed his first year as the Chief of the Clearview Fire and Emergency Services.  Prior to that he was the Deputy Fire Chief for the department for the previous 5.5yrs.  Having a love for the fire service and being blessed with many great opportunities his 20-year career has taken him through 3 different departments including paid-on-call, composite and career.  He is strongly supported by his family, all 5 ladies and very thankful for the people who have taken chances on him and given him opportunities.

 

On October 10, 2019, the department responded to a residential fire in a rural location.  While the call started out relatively routine, things would quickly take a turn for the worse.  While Roree and his partner staffed an attack line on the first floor, conditions rapidly changed, both outside and inside, resulting in flashover, a near-miss and ultimately the loss of the structure.
