The Nolensville Volunteer Fire Department has been facing a variety of challenges and growing pains with the increase in population of both the Town of Nolensville and the entire Middle Tennessee region, but now the department is adapting to face the COVID-19 threat.
On March 14 the department suspended visitation to the fire hall until further notice as a precaution to ensure that they can continue to operate.
"That's part of what you should do as a public servant is to check on those people and make sure that they have what they need," Spencer said.
Spencer said that anyone in need of the assistance or anyone who knows of someone who is in need should contact NFVD's Lt. Scott McPherson, who has organized teams of drivers to pick up and deliver the essential goods during the health crisis.
McPherson can be contacted by phone at 615-512-7985.
While the greater issues of the future structure and operations of the department will no doubt continue to be discussed as they have for years, Spencer said that the department will not stop adapting to the fluid crisis and continue to respond to emergencies.
