Blue Ridge Mountain Volunteer Fire Co. Fire Chief Earl Cogle (left) stands with Tim Offutt of Todd Electric and Jim Schmitt of Schmitt Construction during the recent testing of a generator. Blue Ridge has completed a joint project with the Jefferson County Emergency Services Agency to install emergency power systems at both the main station on Keys Gap Road and the substation on Mission Road. This project was approved by the county in the 2013 Impact Fees Budget to provide power for normal station operations and heated/cooled centers for potential evacuation of area citizens during extended power outages. The project is the fourth in the county. Blue Ridge joins Independent, Shepherdstown and Citizens fire companies in operating county-financed emergency systems. Friendship Fire Co. was recently approved as the next project.
