The Cedar Bluff Town Council met in regular session Monday night.
Approximately 5 weeks ago, a car ran into the back of a Cedar Bluff fire truck while the department was directing traffic at the intersection of highway 9 AND 35. The fire truck damages totaled to around $75,000. The engine is inoperable at this time and the truck will most likely be totaled. The Town of Cedar Bluff still has only one working fire truck.
The Cedar Bluff Town Council voted to approve Resolution 202301 declaring public emergency for the temporary rental of a replacement fire truck. The temporary replacement truck will be rented from Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus’. It should be arriving as soon as today. (01/10/23)
Since the accident surrounding area fire departments have been on standby to assist Cedar Bluff if necessary.
The Town of Cedar Bluff is still looking to purchase a replacement brush truck soon, as well after the one that was previously being used in Cedar Bluff was totaled. Most of the equipment was salvaged from the wrecked truck and can still be used.
