Clarksville Fire Rescue 

Clarksville Fire RescueClarksville, TN – Chasing down breakaway barges on the Cumberland River may not be the first duty that comes to mind when considering Clarksville Fire Rescue, but the department has answered that call twice during the past month.

First, on New Year’s Eve, the department’s Marine Response Division took to the river when a construction barge and crane involved in the McClure Bridge project broke free. Then, on January 20th, the team helped corral a barge that broke loose while awaiting off-loading of ore at the zinc plant. Both incidents were resolved without injuries or damage to property.

In fact, nearly half of Tennessee’s Gross Domestic Product comes from the movement of goods and more than half of statewide employment is in goods-dependent industries.
