On February 4, the department received a call to 126 Bradley 182, Banks.  Upon arrival, they discovered a building fire.  Nine personnel reported.  Assistance was received from the Jersey Fire Department.

On February 7, the were called out to a forest/woods fire at 168 Bradley 303.  According to the fire report, a wood fire was reported directly to a firefighter at Bradley County Rural Fire Station.  When the first unit arrived, the residents in the area had contained the fire on one side but the fire had started into the woods and had started to consume dry tree tops.  The tree tops were extinguished with considerable effort, and the fire only burned a small area.  The fire was deemed unintentional.  The owner of the property was James Lasiter.
