Perryville hydrants to be tested

E911 should be notified of control burns

LIBERTY - People who plan to burn trash or brush are asked to call the Casey County E911 Emergency Communications Center before they start the fire.

When people start a fire, someone usually calls the E911 center, which alerts a fire department.

"A lot of volunteer firefighters have to leave work when a fire call comes in," Josh Wethington of the E911 office said. Calling before the fire is ignited saves time for the firefighters, he said.


Casey County Board of Education - 5 p.m. Thursday in the administrative offices on U.S. 127 North. The agenda includes a review of the code of acceptable behavior and discipline, discussion on the 2004-2005 fiscal year budget, and approval of high school diplomas.
