The local Rotary club heard from Nashville Fire Chief Jerry Harwell during Wednesday's meeting. Harwell says the department has 25 firefighters and that things have changed during the past several years. For one thing, they are a municipal fire department and have to follow city regulations. There is more training involved and people are just not as interested as they used to be in serving on the department. Harwell says they normally have about nine house fire calls per year. In addition to city funding, the local fire department (as many others) receives Act 833 money...which does provide additional funding for equipment. Terry Ray is the assistant chief. Captains are Joe Hoen and Jeff Westfall. Jimmy Mixon is the training officer and is also a captain. Also pictured is firefighter Russell Sparks.
