Placeholder Image
After getting a luke-warm response from county officials, a medical and rescue bicycle team has found a home at Centertown Volunteer Fire Department.“The department’s board of directors voted to fund it,” said Centertown Capt. Clyde Prater. “We think it will be well worth it.”The medical and rescue bicycle team presently consists of two bicycles and four volunteers. They hope to expand it soon.Centertown Lt. Joey Clark, who is also a paramedic, says the unit is important because the bicycle patrol can go places where regular vehicles cannot.
