Montgomery County Government TennesseeMontgomery County, TN – This week Cunningham Volunteer Fire Rescue celebrated the opening of a new substation in the Southside area of Montgomery County. The rescue service works in conjunction with Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and the Chief of the Volunteer Fire Department.

“Having this substation helps us to get to a fire in this area quicker because we can get our equipment much faster. It also improves the Insurance Service Office (ISO) rating for residents who live within a five-mile radius of the station,” said Chris Proctor, assistant director of EMS operations.

Members of Cunningham Volunteer Fire Rescue, Fire Protection Committee, County Commissioners, Sheriff John Fuson, and community members attended the ribbon cutting. Mayor Durrett was unable to attend because of a budget committee meeting.

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – This could be an interesting council session.
