TOWN OF REHOBETH:    1:33 PM   Houston County Sheriff 911 dispatched Town of Rehobeth Rescue to a medical emergency, 86 year old male.


When Town of Rehobeth Rescue arrived they determined assistance was needed to help lift the patient.


Houston County Sheriff 911 paged Town of Reobeth Fire. Their fireman, Chad Knighton, who had no radio to notify her was responding, responded.


Southern Junction Volunteer Fire Chief Matt Boster who also serves as Captain of Cottonwood Rescue and is a EMT, responded to assist in helping Town of Rehobeth Rescue lift the patient.


THANK YOU to Knighton and Boster for their willingness to assist on a Saturday afternoon, for free.


In Alabama, there is 52,419 square miles. There is an estimated population of 4,858,979 persons in the State of Alabama.


Alabama has 67 counties. There are 460 incorporated municipalities, 291 towns amd 169 cities, with 60.4% of the population.


COMBINED, in the State of Alabama,  from Madrid size  to Huntsville size, they occupy on 9.6% of the State of Alabama's total area. That means, 90.4% of the time you are outside of a municipality, town of city.


HOUSTON COUNTY has 582 square miles.


In this 582 suare miles, the City of Dothan is 90.17 square miles; City of Taylor is 7.31 square miles; Town of Rehobeth is 7.52 square miles, Town of Madrid is 1.745 square miles; Town of Cottonwood is 5.8 square miles; Town of Cowarts is 7.72 square miles; Town of Ashford is 6.22 square miles; Town of Gordon is 2.919 square miles; Town of Columbia is 4 square miles; Town of Webb is 11.26 square miles; Town of Kinsey is 12.12 square miles.


Above combined, 156.784 square miles of the 582 square miles of Houston County sits inside a incorporated municipality, town of city. So 425.16 square miles of Houston County is outside of a incorporated municipality, town or city. So 73% of Houston County is "in the county" and the sole responsibility of the Houston County Commission ( Chairman Mark Culver, Commissioner Curtis Harvey, Doug Sinquefield, Ricky Herring, Brandon Shoupe ), Sheriff Donald Valenza.


In the State of Alabama, before the last graduating class of Alabama State Troopers          ( ALEA-Troopers ), rank Corporal up, there were 450 Alabama State Troopers. Which dividied by 67 counties is 6 Troopers per county.


So when I push Volunteer Fire and EMS, remember, 73% of the 582 square miles protection rests on the Volunteer Fire and EMS across Houston County.


A couple of exambles:


Lingo Road behind WalMart Northside - off Flynn Road - Primary Fire Department is Bay Springs Volunteer Fire Department off Highway 84 West at South Bay Springs Road, the back up department is Wicksburg Volunteer Fire - Rescue.


U.S. Business Products located at 3860 Napier Field Road - primary fire department is Bay Springs Volunteer Fire Department and secondary is Wicksburg Fire Department. There is a Dothan Fire Station located at 3239 Napier Field Road. The Dothan Fire Station sits .06 miles from U.S. Business Products, which this business sits outside the City Limits of Dothan Alabama.


Bay Springs Volunteer Fire to U.S. Business Profucts is 8.4 miles or 16 minutes travel time.


So the 2022 elections on the Houston County Commission is VERY IMPORTANT to health and safety.
