Thanks to Falkville Fire, Rescue for community service 

A special word of appreciation goes out this week to all of the members of the Falkville Fire and Rescue for everything that they do for the Falkville community and surrounding area. 

The month of July marks one year of service for firefighter Dylan Coty! In his first year, he has been an extremely involved member. He responds to countless calls, mans the station regularly and also attends trainings and much more. He recently passed Certified Volunteer Firefighter and Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations, and he is attending training for Fire Instructor 1.  

The department thanks Dylan for his time and dedication and looks forward to many more years!  

The Falkville community really appreciated the Falkville Volunteer Department for helping to remove a tree limb that had fallen onto the roof of an elderly resident’s home. Kindness and selfless acts truly make the world a better place. 

According to the Falkville Fire and Rescue Chief Tyler Tucker, when most people think about what’s dangerous about being a firefighter, they think about running into a burning building or performing high-angle rescues. Chief Tucker said that by far the scariest thing he does as a firefighter is working a wreck on the highway.  

Chief Tucker said during a call to a wreck one time, he parked the truck with emergency lights about 200 yards from the accident to give drivers plenty of notice to change lanes and slow down. After responders got the patient extricated, he carried the first aid kit back to his truck and sat in the truck in case they got another call while waiting for the tow truck to arrive.  

Tyler said he watched for 15 minutes how traffic reacted. More than half of the traffic that passed never slowed down and wouldn’t change lanes until right up on the accident.  

He also saw two vehicles pass by at 70-plus miles per hour and almost wreck because they wouldn’t slow down and change lanes.  

Please slow down! If lights are on, responders are working close by.  

Chief Tucker said he and his fellow responders want to get home to their families, just as bad as anyone else, so please, as soon as you see lights, start slowing down.  

God bless all of our firefighters, and many thanks!
