LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Those of us of a certain age know the house as the Hollingsworth house while others now it as the house across from Taco Bell. Regardless, come Tuesday around 8am, there will be a lot of smoke in and around that house.
“Weather permitting, we’ll have a three day smoke training session at the Hollingsworth house. That’s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Sept.6-8,” said La Follette Fire Chief Jimmy Pack.
Pack goes on to say that LFD Training Officer Joey Gilbert will have all LFD veteran firefighters and the rookies team up during the smoke training. “Each shift will then go back and evaluate their performances,” said Pack.
New firefighter training will be conducted at the Hollingsworth house for the next several weeks.
“The smoke we’re using during all this training is EPA approved and is non-toxic. It’s environmentally friendly,” added the Chief. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/02/2022-6AM)
