No Medical Calls
The Cedar Bluff Fire Department will no longer respond to medical calls unless the Cherokee EMS requests assistance. Cedar Bluff council members made the unanimous decision during Monday’s council meeting. The city cites liability as the deciding factor. Cherokee EMS has been handling calls during daytime hours while operating from a staging area at the Weiss Mart Motel. Cedar Bluff Fire Chief Matthew Sprayberry agrees with the decision to cut the department’s medical response during the daytime hours, but he doesn’t think cutting response at night is a good decision.
