Where would we be without first responders? We hate to imagine.
We need them more often that we'd like.
On Sunday fire, EMS, and police personnel responded immediately and professionally to the aftermath of the storm that the National Weather Service is now calling a downburst (see page 1A). On Monday they answered the call again to a near head-on collision on state Route 7 (see page 5A). And last week New Martinsville Police Department Patrolman Jason Utt saved a man's life when he was in the right place at the right time, then choose to immediately take action (see page 1A).
We notice your hard work. We appreciate you. We couldn't, in fact wouldn't, live without you. Thanks.
