Latest Lamar Fire Department Response Calls

 The Lamar Fire and Ambulance Services responded to several calls during the  Labor Day weekend and afterwards. 

Personnel were on hand for a semi- truck that had rolled off the highway at the Wiley Intersection on Sunday morning, September 2.  A 2013 Freightliner rolled off the highway onto the driver’s side where the only damage to the vehicle occurred.  There were no chemical spills resulting from the accident and no hazard materials were being transported as freight.  The Prowers County Rural Fire Department, Wiley Fire Department and Prowers County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene, which required several hours to right the vehicle and get it back on the highway.
