Montgomery Locals July 17, 2019

By Staff | Jul 17, 2019

Many, many thanks to Assistant Fire Chief Brad Feaster, and Firefighters Chris Swisher and Daniel Bridge, along with the rest of the members of the Montgomery Volunteer Fire Department who put their lives on the line every day to come running to the rescue at any hour of the day or night. It takes a rare type of person to take such risks with no compensation other than the gratitude of those they help. We are very blessed as a community to have these brave and selfless individuals watching over us.

Lots of Happy Birthday wishes to Jeanette LaForme, who will be celebrating her special day on July 20.
