Chainsaws Purchased for LCSO


Levy County Emergency Management Director Mark Johnson presents Levy County Sheriff McCallum with 4 battery operated chain saws to outfit LCSO Deputies for storm situations. This new purchase resulted from a suggestion from Deputy Jeremy Dean.  Concerned with maintaining gas operated saws and the fumes associated with transporting mixed gasoline, Deputy Dean researched and located this alternative.

The Tax Payers along with LCSO, the Emergency Operations Center and the Levy County Road Department will reap the benefits of these new tools.  As we move forward into the hurricane season, these new saws can be more safely transported and stored in LCSO vehicles.  This allows faster utilization to assist the Road Department in rapidly clearing blocked roads during storm events.
