In an effort to keep the community informed along with social distancing guidelines due to COVID-19, Reynolds Fire Department is using flyers and online notification for the purpose of notifying the community of our upcoming training.
On Saturday, September 12, 2020 the Reynolds Fire Department along with numerous neighboring departments will be conducting a live fire training burn at the construction site located at 103 Charlotte Highway. This location is directly across from Martin Monuments. All permits needed from WNC Air Quality and other state resources have been obtained along with meeting state and local guidelines for conducting such training event.
There will be fire equipment in the area during the training period starting around 8:00 a.m.. This equipment will remain in the area through a majority of the day for the training event and then continue to be on the location until the area is deemed safe. Traffic impacts should be kept to a minimum but motorist should be aware and vigilant in passing through the area.
Along with fire department apparatus there will be smoke in the area, every effort to minimize smoke will be made.
