In preparation of the anticipated heavy rainfall in Cobb County over the next few days, Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services would like to notify residents who live on or near Columns Drive and the Chattahoochee River that fire protection and emergency medical services coverage could be delayed or limited due to flooded streets. This includes those who reside on or near Riverlook Parkway, Riverview Drive, and live in the Atlanta Country Club community.
We are monitoring the water levels in Sope Creek and the Chattahoochee River and have planned to stage a fully staffed fire engine in the area in case streets become impassable. The unit will be located at the clubhouse in the River Heights Apartments complex, and will remain there as long as there is a threat of flooding streets. We are coordinating these efforts with the Cobb County Police Department and the Cobb County DOT, and if flooding begins, barricades will be placed at the intersections of River Knoll Drive/Atlanta County Club Drive and Johnson Ferry Road/Columns Drive and these streets will be closed. If you need emergency assistance, please call 9-1-1.
