Emergency Medical Information

Bent Tree Fire Rescue has already responded to over 110 medical calls in 2023. During a medical emergency, it is very important for first responders to be aware of vital medical information for the involved patient. This information cannot always be communicated verbally and is sometimes forgotten by family members during stressful conditions.

That is why we are asking all residents to complete the medical questionnaire below. It does not need to be returned to us. Instead, place the completed forms inside a large freezer bag or a large medication bottle and place it on your top freezer shelf. Our personnel are trained to look in that location during medical emergencies.

We hope this information never needs to be used, but it is best to be prepared. MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE FORM

The Bent Tree Water Dept., in conjunction with BTFD, will be flow testing fire hydrants beginning June 13th. This is required to exercise hydrants and pressure reducing valves while establishing flows to maintain ISO ratings. We will be conducting a directional flush that will begin at the respective water tanks and flow downward throughout each system. Only a minimal number of hydrants will be flushed each day to allow water dept. employees to adequately flush mains afterwards. The flow testing process will take several weeks to complete. There will be no testing during the week of Youth Fest. The initial area will be on Shadowick Mtn. tank to encompass the Denny Ridge section along with Sassafras Mtn. Updates will be provided ahead of time for other sections.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Ashley Brownell

A note from Sheila, Food and Beverage Manager:
We have very limited staff in the kitchen; therefore, dinner parties are currently limited to 8 people. If there is a party larger than 8, they will be asked to split. This will allow our staff to give them the best service and get their food to them in a timely manner. This will remain in place only until we are adequately staffed.
Please be patient with The Tavern Team as we go through this transition period.
Sundays at the Tavern, service will be limited to hot dogs and beverages only until adequate staff in place.

Please refer to the website for current hours and location availability.

Next week Bent Tree residents will be receiving a survey from the University of Georgia seeking input on how we view and live with our deer population. the deer management study is being conducted by the UGA Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources to help create deer management best practices for communities like Bent Tree going forward. Inputs from residents is valuable to the research team to ensure all viewpoints are heard and represented.
