On behalf of our fire department, I want to thank everyone for your prayers, texts and calls. Last night around 7pm we were responding to a vehicle accident on Interstate 55 around the 24 mile marker. As we were clearing the scene we were involved in an accident with a semi truck. We had 4 personnel in the rescue at the time of the accident. All were transported to the hospital including the driver of the semi. We were very fortunate that my guys sustained minor injuries. The driver had minor injuries as well. God was with us for sure. As of 3am this morning, 3 of our personnel were released from the hospital and 1 remained at Regional One Hospital for further testing. Again, thank you for checking on us and praying for us. Please continue to pray for all involved, that they may have a speedy recovery.
