Use caution when driving this evening as there have been several reports of limbs and trees down. At this time, the only road that is blocked by a tree down is Abby Road. This road leads into the subdivision across from Mt. Woods Lake Road. It is blocking all entrance into and out of the subdivision. Alabama Power is enroute due to power lines being involved in the tree, as well as District 1. Be safe, and call us should you need us. ... ExpandHide
Yesterday we were honored to be able to participate in the Hayden High School Senior Awards Day. The West Blount Fire and EMS District awarded our first ever full scholarship to the Alabama Fire College to one individual, which at his completion will give him Firefighter 1/2 and Hazmat A/O, and with this he will be a state certified firefighter. In addition to that, this individual will also have his room and boarding covered while at the fire college.
Our congratulations to Dalton Sharp on receiving this award, and thanks to this community for allowing us to put back into it a portion of what you give! ... ExpandHide
