Chief Glasgow, Firefighter Janie Potts at Taylor Fire

2012-12-09 - Taylor Co. Tire Sales, 127 S. Columbia Avenue, Campbellsville, KY - Photo by Larry Smith, FM 99.9 .
Comrades in a common cause It was bit of emotional time for me first to see the relief on the faces of the already tired firefighters on the scene when Columbia's Ladder One arrived and later proved to be pivotal changing the course of the tragic fire. This time. It was reassuring to see Chief Mike Glasgow, left, on the scene and to see the Breeding Fire Department roll in. There's a bond between firefighters, policemen, and other first responders, which must only exist elsewhere in the U.S. Armed forces. It's wonderful to see. When there's a fire, there's a unified, coordinated effort. Janie Potts, right is part of a super Adair County organization, the Breeding Area Volunteer Fire Department, there, as well, to pitch in, cover to the backs of their fellow firefighters. Next time, as so often before, the Campbellsville Firefighters will be the ones to save the day. As you've heard me say so often on the radio, "We've got to quit tripping over county lines." Firefighters are showing the way. I took this picture on Saturday, during the fire. It was a bleak time for us, but as Campbellsville has done every time it faces a challenge, I know the community will regroup, rebuild, and be better in spite of this tragedy. Yesterday, that had already begun to happen, after the lights came back on and a welcome rain helped douse the flames and wash soot from the buildings, as though Providence were on our side. - Larry Smith, Operations Manager, 99.9 FM The Wave.
