ACFD Hosts Residential Sprinkler Training for Firefighters
Chuck Walker, Chief - January 18th, 2007
On the evening of January 18th, the Ashland City Fire Department hosted a training session for firefighters on Residential Fire Sprinkler Operations.  Vickie Pritchett, Fire Team Project Manager, delivered the program, which included a live fire sprinkler demonstration.

Ashland City, the second municipality in Tennessee to adopt a "zero-square-foot" sprinkler requirement, is the county seat of Cheatham County, which enacted the State's first county-wide sprinkler ordinance last fall.

"With more and more structures being built with these systems, it's important for our personnel to understand what they need to do in the event of an activation," said ACFD Chief, Chuck Walker.  "We also want them to understand the benefits that sprinklers provide not only to the residents, but to them as firefighters."

Plans are being made to ensure that every firefighter in Cheatham County receives this training.
