Everyone here at AM 1180 would like to extend our thanks to all the emergency workers and law enforcement officials who have worked tirelessly during the flood.
Sheriff John Everett and his department along with Commissioner Jason Winters and Public Works Director Lamar Canada and all the employees of Chattooga County Public Works have worked many hours to assist victims of the flood. The Trion Police Department is working hard to keep the citizens of Trion safe during this time. The folks at Chattooga County 911 have put in many hours along with EMS Director Herbert Dodd and his staff. Every fire department in Chattooga County has sent volunteer firemen to assist in the flood recovery.
Countless volunteers from the American Red Cross and churches across Chattooga County are making efforts to help the flood victims. The Pentecostal Worship Center has opened their doors for the American Red Cross Disaster Shelter and many other churches in the county have donated food and money to the recovery effort.
Some people may look at Chattooga County and see a small county with limited resources, but what they don’t realize is that the people of Chattooga County are our biggest asset. Take time today to be thankful for those who have worked hard during this natural disaster and remember those affected by this flood in your prayers.
