ASHFORD-COWARTS: 12:43 AM. In just a few hours these men and women will get out of bed and go to work to earn a living.
But right now, 12:43 AM, these men and women of Ashford Fire, Cowarts Fire and Ashford Rescue are up and out of bed.
The fire alarm at Ashford Elementary School sounded. These emergency responders got out of their beds and responded. There was no smoke or flames visible.
The alarm company contact was no longer a good contact. The number then given no one answered.
The fireman do not see anything from the outside of the building that would warrant taking the axe and busting the glass from the door to gain entrance.
Now they ought to. Because the management could update the numbers for emergency contact. About 12 people got out of bed, got fire trucks and responded ready to fight a fire if needed.
If you bust the window someone would get off their buttocks and update contact information, make a key available or cut off the alarm.
THANK YOU to each of the three departments who got out of bed and went.
Ashford Fire Chief Jimmy Posey asked Houston County Sheriff 911 to begin at the top and start calling until they got someone.
01:00 AM Maintenance Supervisor on way.
ALSO REMEMBER $ 400 million dollars meant for EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement who are on front lines during COVID went for prisons. Not to fire, EMS or law enforcement.
The prison issue existed back when Robert Bentley was Governor. It was just ignored.
So I appreciate those who serve in emergencies even those in leadership do not care if you have resources to help people live. Don’t believe me, look at their actions and what they are doing with the money.
