Updated: Jan 11

MOUND CITY – On Monday, Jan. 3, while the American Medical Response (AMR) representative reported to the Linn County Commissioners that the past week had been slower than usual with 22 calls and 12 transports, Linn County Fire Chief Doug Barlet reported that the fire department had been busier than usual.

Barlet said that there had been several structure fires, which is not uncommon this time of year when people are starting up heaters or wood stoves to keep warm.

He also said that the fire department had been called out for vehicle wrecks and fires, and medical deployment for helicopters.
