Franklin Fire & Police team up to fight hunger with “Badges Give Back” Food Drive, through June 14

The Franklin Fire and Police Departments are teaming up to help fight hunger. “Badges Give Back” kicks off today, and non-perishable food donations are being accepted at FPD and FFD Headquarters, and at all eight of the city’s fire stations. Between now and June 14th, you can drop off:

  • Canned fruits and vegetables, especially corn and green beans

“Badges Give Back” benefits One Gen Away, a Franklin-based non-profit that distributes healthy food to Middle Tennessee families in need.

Franklin Police Officers save man’s life, pulling him from burning car

Franklin Police Officers responding to a seemingly routine call early this morning ended up saving a man’s life.

Shortly after 5 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Jordan Rd. and Westminster Dr. for an open-line 9-1-1 call from a mobile phone. While officers were on their way, they came across a vehicle that had driven off of the road and was on fire. The two officers moved quickly to free an unconscious driver from his seatbelt, pulling him from the car before it burst into flames. The driver, who is believed to have been having a medical emergency, was uninjured and is doing fine.

Officers David Edwards and Kyle Brink, the two officers in this video, are being lauded by their fellow officers as heroes. The Department plans to award both officers with commendations related to saving the driver’s life.
