PANSEY: About 5:30 AM Pansey VOLUNTEER FIRE Larry Givens and Gordon Fire Chief Justin McAllister responded to East Cook Road in Pansey to a tree across the road.
The VOLUNTEER UNPAID PROFESSIONALS took the chain saw and cut the tree and cleared the roadway. Thus saving Barkley Kirkland and the Houston County Road and Bridge Department from having to call a crew out and cut the tree out of the road.
THANKS to Larry and Justin. That mean Houston County did not have to pay overtme to anyone.
The UNPAID PROFESSIONAL fire and rescue responded to and handled some 588 fire and EMS calls in Houston County in July, 2018. While Houston County is some 566 square miles, the City of Dothan only has 68 square miles. So the UNPAID PROFESSIONAL Fire and EMS covers some 498 square miles.
From January 1 through the end of July 2018, the UNPAID PROFESSIONAL Fire and EMS has handled 4041 Fire and EMS calls in the 498 square miles.
Dothan Fire Chief Larry Williams is great about assisting the UNPAID PROFESSIONAL FIRE and EMS when additional assistance or advanced life support is required in the 498 square mile area.
