Active Shooter Response Class Monday, November 13
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday November 8, 2017

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has expressed its deepest sympathy for families and friends of victims of Sutherland Springs, Texas. Sadly, shootings at the workplace, houses of worship and events have become all too common. In September, one woman was killed and 7 injured when a gunman opened fire at an Antioch, Tennessee church. With that in mind, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has partnered with Bethlehem Baptist Church for an active shooter response training class on Monday, November 13, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Bethlehem Baptist Church, 626 Potato Farm Road. This class is to provide civilian response training in the event of an active shooter. During the class, participants will learn several different common sense response options other than a lock down only approach. If you cannot attend this class, please call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at (931) 484-6176 and ask to speak with Inv. Bo Kollros or Chief Bill Ashley to schedule a class for your organization or business.

Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday November 7, 2017

Floods in Cumberland County washed out several roads this morning and Peg Broadcasting News has learned that at least two vehicles were swept away on Clint Lowe Road. The drivers of those vehicles reportedly were not seriously injured. It was a different story in southeast Tennessee where they not only had to deal with a lot of rain but also strong winds. The McMinn County Sheriff's Office reports that at least one person was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries after possible straight line winds destroyed a home on CR 100. Several other structures were damaged and trees were blown down in the Athens/Englewood area which also experienced widespread power outages. Winds also blew down numerous trees and knocked out power in Meigs County. There were no immediate reports of injuries there.
