Roy Brandon, president of the South Roane County Volunteer Fire Department, said he’s witnessed more than a few financial storms during his time.
“I’ve been at it since ’76, so I’ve seen plenty of ups and downs,” Brandon said.
Now would be one of those down times for South Roane County.
In an effort to make ends meet, Brandon said, the department is planning to cut about five vehicles from its fleet.
