Among those who will be relieved when the sanitary sewer smoke tests are completed today will be Jim Reuther, chief of the Jamestown Fire Department. His department has been called out 16 times since July 29 for reports of smoke in homes.
Fifteen of the 16 calls were handled by the ready squad. The ready squad is one or two of the department’s full-time staff who go to the scene of unknown incidents and determine if the whole fire department needs to respond.
