Celebrating Georgia Cities Week 2018

During that same week, Elberton’s Fire Department exhibited a fire truck ladder at Elberton Elementary School. The firefighter at the bottom part of the ladder is Calvin Tate the fireman  going up is Tony Wicker. During the week, City of Elberton employees organized a ‘Touch a Truck’ event that involved the Elberton Police Department, the Elberton Fire Department, Elberton Public Works Department and the Elbert County Emergency Medical Services. During the ‘Touch a Truck’ event, students were able to ‘touch’ or actually get inside a police car, a fire truck or an ambulance. The event gives information to the community about how cities positively impact the quality of life. In addition to Elbert County Elementary School and Paul J. Blackwell Learning Center, the city employees were also able to visit with fifth grade students at Elbert County Middle School.
