FireFree collection successful

This year’s FireFree Community Clean-up event was a success, according to Assistant Fire Chief Tom Jaca.

“With the addition of Deer Ridge Correctional Facility taking all yard debris, the residents of Jefferson County hauled in 466 loads of yard debris totaling 2,552 cubic yards,” he said.

A FireFree weekend event is being planned for this fall, with the date to be announced soon. A special thanks goes out to Payne West Insurance for their continued support of this program, Jaca said.
