2017 Busiest Year on Record for Taylorville Fire Department

2017 was the busiest year on record for the Taylorville Fire Department. The department took over 1,600 calls last year, more than any other year in its 130-year history.

 

Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Crews says that’s unlike the national trend of fire calls dropping, and he doesn’t have a specific reason for the spike in calls.

 

 

Crews says one fire in particular serves as a reminder for all residents to call 911 when there is an emergency.

 

 

Crews and Assistant Fire Chief Andy Goodall appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
