Parkers Mill getting first ladder truck

Residents of the Parkers Mill Fire District may not realize it, but they’re about to benefit from the fire department getting its first ever ladder truck.

Ahead of Tuesday’s meeting of Pulaski County Fiscal Court, county officials got a chance to see the new truck which recently arrived and is currently being equipped before it joins the Parkers Mill fleet.

“Pulaski County is known throughout the state as having the best fire departments and the best equipment to serve the public,” Judge-Executive Steve Kelley said. “We are excited to be able to continue in that commitment. This new ladder truck is state of the art, and will be a great addition to our efforts here in Pulaski County.” (click header to read more)

Most of what is recycled locally is cardboard — accounting for 4.8 million of the 6.8 million pounds taken in at the center last year.
Since 2010, nearly 40 million pounds of what would have been garbage has been successfully re-purposed with the help of the Pulaski County Recycling Center.
“That’s how much waste we’ve diverted from the landfills since the recycling center opened,” Solid Waste Coordinator Danny Masten reported earlier this month to Pulaski County Fiscal Court.

It’s not JUST a STOP sign, it’s a child’s life.

We as a district are finding more and more people passing the stopped buses. The fear of a child getting hurt is ever so real after the Louisville accident.
PLEASE pay attention to the stopped school buses and STOP your vehicle, DO NOT PASS school buses as children are boarding!
The danger to the life of a child is not worth arriving at your destination 30 seconds sooner.
