Happy Friday! Some of us older members or maybe it’s just me, believe that the fault line under the bridge cause storms to go north or south of the center of town. Last nights storms still keeps that theory true in my mind.
As the storms arrived in our area, the night started with a fire in a private dwelling in Eclectic, a commercial fire at a local bank in “Carrville”. These incidents were all due to lightening strikes. The streak ended with a smoke odor at a local apartment, the occupants feared it was lightening related.
All answered by volunteers.
The “few dedicated to the many” can always use a few more.

Crews from the Engine and Rescue just cleared the scene of a single vehicle MVA with a pin on Notasulga Road near Macedonia Road. The tools were put to work to extricate the driver where they were transported with non-life threatening injuries. PD is still on scene investigating please avoid the about the next hour. Good work to the members operating on this job.
We hope you all enjoy your Independence Day weekend. Please keep in mind that our freedom isn’t free, and that our servicemen and women are still fighting the good fight for us! Have a safe holiday, and we will be here if you need us!
Make sure to support our neighboring department tomorrow by getting you some Crawfish. These guys work hard to prepare for this event every year. With rising cost on everything departments depend on donations and fundraising events to continue to serve our citizens.
Tomorrow’s the big day. We always have fun. Except last year Mother Nature had fun that day. Looks like bright blue skies and hopefully a nice breeze. We’ve got the pecan trees and a nice size tent for shade from the sun featured in Mario 3. 1500lbs of crawfish!!! More than we’ve ever bought before. We even have true professionals cooking this year. Bring your favorite beverage come listen to live music while enjoying some delicious fresh crawfish. We have a few chairs but we encourage you to bring chairs if you have them. As always thank yall for your continued support.
It’s Summer time in Alabama, and we would like to share some information that could help us all in the coming weeks. Please remember to stay hydrated, and not to over exert yourself. Stay safe!
As we go through this holiday weekend, we remember those that paid the ultimate price for our Freedom.
There is no amount of commas in our bank accounts, nor enough cash stuffed in the bottom of our pockets to cover the check that the sons and daughters of America wrote for our freedom. WE WILL REMEBER THEM.
Please stay safe this weekend, and remeber that your Tallassee Firefighters stand ready to respond when called upon.
NIGHTS LIKE THIS…
Tonight members of the Tallassee Police Department, and Tallassee Fire Department came together and reviewed inter-agency procedures for water rescue incidents in our territory.
Then we hosted a send-off shrimp boil for one of our own. Firefighter Sage Golden, will be leaving for a deployment over seas, and tonight was his last training night. Being able to come together, eat, and joke is a necessity in our profession. We wish him safe travels, and look forward to his return.

INFORMATION FROM TPD
Tonight TFD was contacted by a family from Tuskegee requesting assistance for a animal rescue where a puppy had its head entrapped inside of the rim of a tire. We were happy to oblige them. They brought the animal and tire to the station where vehicle extrication shears were used to cut the rim and disentangle the puppy. The puppy was returned to its owners unharmed.
We were honored to get the opportunity to meet this amazing couple, who’s conducting a journey of a lifetime. Go over to their Facebook, and follow them!

In true Alabama fashion, it looks like we will have winter visit us this week. Please understand and utilize safe practices when heating your home. A good percentage of structure fires during the winter season, are caused by misuse of space heaters, and the overloading of power strips.
