SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. -- In Shelbyville this weekend, firefighters and other emergency workers did what they could to combat, what they call, an image problem in Bedford County with a public service day.
The day included a free concert with several acts, all aimed at benefiting children. Emergency workers from all over Bedford County volunteered for the event. Organizers say it was a fun day for a town that has seen its fair share of bad news over the past year.
"You just see it all over the news, and we're trying to turn the corner," said Jason Barber with the Unionville Fire Department. "Shelbyville and Bedford County can be known for something good, not just bad news."
Earlier in the day, Emergency crews in Bedford County showed off their fire trucks and other emergency vehicles, including a helicopter as part of the public service day.
