VERY WELL SAID
FROM SLOCOMB FIRE CHIEF KYLE HOVEY
This was 2 years ago but it seems like yesterday to all of us in the EMS world. I have been able to catch a little bit of a second wind despite Covid and all the other challenges of this past year because I have employees who are willing to stand in the gap for me to perform exceptionally for the community they serve. I need folks in all the other county commission districts to contact their county commissioner and ask them to use County ARP funds to support EMS and fire departments. Weston Spivey already does. I need folks in Hartford, Geneva and Samson to contact their county commissioner. They have an opportunity to help the 4 cities who have funded ems since it’s inception. After 30 years of experience, it doesn’t matter if you ask some elected officials for help kindly or bluntly for fire and ems, their reaction is anger. I have never understood that because we need help. This tired ole boy has volunteered thousands of hours to this county for 30 years. All we ask is the County support the cities and the county volunteer fire departments for their ARP funding request.
