Pegram fire: Fire chief assesses response
Reflecting on the events of Feb. 1, Pegram fire chief Brent Stuart is still moved by the enormity of the fire that destroyed the Pegram Valu Plus Supermarket on Highway 70. "In 22 years with the Pegram Fire Department, I have not seen anything to this magnitude concerning a commercial structure fire on the south end of the county," Stuart said.

It is time for the Town of Pegram to review its Fire policy, Fire Plan and General Emergency Services and Public Safety Plan, Cheatham County is relatively small in size and population but has numerous independent fire units. The County has a fire tax and a County Fire chief, emergency management director plus other law enforcement and disconnected codes personnel. There should be a call to evaluate and reorganize Emergency management with guidance and direction from the State level.The Pegram Planning Commission and the Board of Mayor and Alderman should be in Emergency session to look at Fire Prevention, Alarm systems, frequency and severity of incidents, personnel and regular codes and fire inspections.
If i were not already "trapped" in Pegram, I would be somewhere else.It is time for the Town to act like a Town and look beyonf barbeques, fish frys and fireworks.
