Today Commissioner Sinquefield personally responded to a structure fire on Melton Road south of Gordon. He went to assist and not to get in the way.

The volunteers along with Dothan-Houston County Emergency Management Director Chris Judah had started stacking the wood that was in the roadway on the side of the road. It was getting dark and would be dangerous. Commissioner Sinquefield jumped right in there with everyone.
One night Commissioner Sinquefield was notified a person took their life in front of a Ashford Police Officer and a Houston County Deputy. Commissioner Sinquefield responded in order to meet the needs of the officers and let them know they were supported.
