September 7, 2017 - The Center FD and the Center Police Department responded to a call at the Tri-County Community Action to assist with removing a snake inside an office on Friday, September 1, 2017 around 1pm.
An employee with Tri-County reported glimpsing the snake but did not get a good enough view before it disappeared.
Arriving on scene to assist was Center Volunteer Fireman Waylon Griffith, Center Fireman Bobby Smith, Center PD Lieutenant Jeremy Bittick, PD Sergeant Ricky King, and PD Officer Kenneth King.
The men searched the office and adjoining office, and once the snake was located it was found to be a green garter snake. Fireman Griffith grabbed the snake and safely removed it from the premises.
