We would like to extend our gratitude to two first responders with Coweta County Fire Rescue.

Firefighters Matt Ransome and Rodney Crow responded to a call made to 911 yesterday from our employees at Woodchop Timber Harvesting, Inc.  

We are a family-owned logging company out of Lafayette, Al and one of our crews are currently working in Coweta County. The John Deere feller-buncher caught on fire yesterday on the job site and our employees called 911.  

The two firemen were very quick to respond and arrived in a very short time from the initial call that was placed. 

As being a logging site, our employees were off the beaten path and the two responders arrived very quickly to take over the situation. 

We are extremely grateful for their prompt response and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to help eliminate the danger that had arisen with the piece of equipment catching fire. 

They chose to do their job to help and serve others and thankfully no further harm was caused to anyone in the presence of the fire. 

Machines can catch fire and actually explode due to the fuel they run but with the help of Matt Ransome and Rodney Crow the situation was handled. They were very sweet and we are very thankful they could arrive in such a short time. 

Notes of gratitude for outstanding deeds are far and few in our world today but we wanted to take the time to extend our appreciation and please let it be known to everyone how thankful we are for the Fire Dept. of Coweta County.

The mission statement above was fulfilled by Matt Ransome and Rodney Crow yesterday as they arrived on the scene to extinguish the fire at our job site.
